Urban Cookies Bakeshop, a Phoenix-based gourmet bakery established in 2005 and proud Local First Arizona member, is expanding its operations with a move to a larger building on 7th Street. The bakery will close its current location on Thursday, March 30 at 6 p.m. in preparation for an opening day Saturday, April 1 in its new digs south of Thomas on 7th St. at 2325 N. 7th St., Phoenix, AZ 85006.
The bakery will occupy 2,500 square feet in three suites at the Sheridan Place plaza, a mid-century cluster of buildings, currently housing Humble Pie, The Main Ingredient Ale House & Cafe, and Sutra Midtown Yoga. The bakery’s move to this location was made possible after two current tenants made plans to close and relocate. The Artisan Guild closed March 1 to focus on its non-profit school initiatives, and The Pile Hole plans to relocate to north Phoenix and will have its last day in its current spot Sunday, March 27.
Customers are encouraged to stop by for the bakery’s opening day celebration on April 1, which will include music, free cookies and free t-shirts for the first five fans. Between now and March 30, customers can also stop by the bakery’s current location at 4711 N. 7th St. to sign its well-wishes wall. The building is set to be torn down in April for redevelopment.
