SABATTUS — Businesses change hands all the time, but not always with such specifics:

When the owner of Front Porch Bakery at 136 Sabattus Road in Sabattus announced the shop was going up for sale in a Facebook post, it began, “Sometimes our journeys shift.”

“Will work with new owner to have a smooth transition. Space is great for other ideas with an awesome landlord. Beautiful little town and the best customers. Will NOT sell to a grouchy person.”

A message for comment this week from the Sun Journal wasn’t returned — hopefully the bakery’s too busy fielding happy candidates.

The shop has had new ownership since January 2020 and is continuing to take orders, according to the post.
