Subscription FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a bread subscription?
Breadshop offers a portion of our daily production as part of a subscription service. Instead of coming in once or twice a week (or more!) and purchasing a loaf of bread, regular customers are able to buy their loaves ahead of time through our website. This ensures that bread will be waiting for them whenever they are able to come by the shop.

Why bread subscriptions?
Good bread takes a long time to make. The loaves coming out of the oven today were started yesterday, sometimes even earlier. Having an allocated number of loaves every day helps us manage production and know how much to make.

What if I can’t pick up my bread this week?
Share a loaf! You can have a friend come by to pick up your subscription for you or themselves. Unfortunately we cannot pause your subscription or switch pickup days (until the next subscription cycle).

What if I forget to pick up my bread?
We will hold your loaf until the end of the day, all unsold or unclaimed bread will be donated to a local food bank. Breadshop does not sell “day-old” bread.

Can I reserve a particular kind of bread along with my subscription?
Our selection of breads vary from day-to-day and some breads are baked earlier in the day and some later depending on when there’s room in the oven. The only way to be sure that you get the exact loaf you’re looking for is to be there when it hits the shelf. We encourage you to talk to your baker and get to know the rhythms of our little shop. If you still miss out on that special loaf of yours, try something else, you may discover a new favorite.

What days and times of the week can I pick up my subscription?
Breadshop is open Wednesday through Sunday, 10am to 5pm. With your subscription you can rest assured that you can come by at 4:55pm and that one loaf left (on an otherwise empty shelf) will be yours.

Geez, $350 is a lot of money! What if I can’t afford that or don’t want to commit to a year’s worth of bread?
Our regular monthly subscriptions will be released after we open. Annual subscriptions are being offered as a pre-opening special in lieu of a crowd-funding campaign. We thought that focusing on what we’re good at would be a better use of our time than reading your name over a bowl of spaghetti.

Does my subscription allow me to skip the line?
No. Customers will still be served on a first-come, first-served basis. After all, that loaf may be yours but those croissants are a different matter.
