46 cent donuts available at the Ann Arbor store during late opening

ANN ARBOR, MI — Shoppers in the Ann Arbor area will have a chance to win free donuts and other goodies at a grand downtown store opening event.

Although Bakehouse46, 116 E. Liberty St. in Ann Arbor, opened in October 2021, the confectionery and cider house will hold their grand grand opening this coming weekend. The store opened its doors thanks to a collaboration between Cupcake Station and Blake Farms. The shop offers a variety of treats from both concepts, including cupcakes, donuts, cheesecake, ice cream, coffee, breakfast sandwiches, and cider.

The store has delayed its official opening in Ann Arbor due to the coronavirus pandemic, said Chelsea Smith, marketing director of Bakehouse46.

“We just wanted to be socially conscious and make sure our staff is taken care of and then our community,” Smith said. “…But now we’re getting back to normal as much as we can.”

The Ann Arbor grand opening follows a similar launch of the company’s new location at 318 S. Main St. in Plymouth, which opened in March.

“We had so much fun doing it. The community really got to know us and we got to know them,” Smith said. “We just thought it was a little unfair not to give Ann Arbor that kind of love.”

The boutique will hold its official grand opening on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 May. “The Grand Opening We Never Had,” as the event is titled, will feature a variety of in-store gifts and goodies, including:

  • The first 46 customers on both days will receive a Bakehosue46 Elite card preloaded with $46 and 15% off all lifetime purchases
  • A happy hour from 4-6 p.m. both days with most times priced at 0.46 cents.
  • A draw to win bagel sandwiches for a year
  • A drawing to win donuts from the cider house for a year
  • A draw to win $250 for catering

The grand opening will also include face paint and balloons from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on both days.

Bakehouse46 is open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday. To view the menu or to order online, visit the bakery’s website.
