Two buildings, one containing eight apartments and the other four, will be ripped down to make way for a 50-foot by 100-foot addition to the bakery, according to Regis Lepage, president of the F. R. Lepage Bakery. The addition will provide an added 10,000 square feet of floor space.

Demolition of the structures will begin in about two weeks. Lepage said the bakery has been at its Park St. site since 1910, producing bread and rolls. The new building will be used for bread and roll baking, also finishing, loading and shipping. Involved were another apartment building and a single-family home, both on Pierce St.
