Dessert-loving hearts and tummies are feeling empty right about now. The beloved Milk Jar Cookies shop is closing both their Los Angeles locations on January 15, 2024 — permanently.
“Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, we find ourselves facing challenges that have made it impossible to continue our operations,” shared the cookie bakery on their Instagram. “The cumulative effects of Covid, an excruciatingly long buildout due to inexplicable delays, a six month strike, and increasing inflationary pressures on our costs have become untenable.”
Courtney Cowan, owner of the bakery, opened up the shop in 2013. Milk Jar Cookies became a hit both locally and nationwide as they even offered to ship their baked goods across the U.S. With their popularity over the past decade, it’s safe to say their cookies will be missed.
“Your loyalty and enthusiasm have always been the driving force behind our success,” continued the bakery on the post. “While our hearts are heavy, they are also chock full of gratitude for your support over the past ten and a half years. ”
So head on out to one of their locations below, show some love to say goodbye, and stock up on those cookies while you still can, Los Angeles!
