In what was termed as a "bittersweet" announcement, popular confectioner East End Cupcakes took to social media to announce they will be closing their Old Port shop in Portland to focus on wholesale production and events.

East End Cupcakes has been putting smiles on the faces of locals and tourists in the Old Port for more than 7 years. Located on Fore Street between Life Is Good and the Old Port Slice Bar, the closing of East End Cupcakes will leave a void for those with a sweet tooth.

East End Cupcakes did not list an official closing date for their shop in their social media posts.
