Saint-Germain America Ceases Operations

To all of our loyal customers, vendors and supporters:

We wish to share an important announcement about Saint-Germain America, Inc. From the time our doors first opened in Hawaii in 1977, we have enjoyed the support of our loyal customers and our partner vendors in making Saint-Germain a Hawaiian household name for quality baked goods. Whether for birthday or graduation parties, holiday or office events, bringing desserts to friends and relatives, or just enjoying breakfast and snacks at home, you made Saint-Germain a part of your daily lives and embraced us into the local Hawaiian community. To all of you we say “Mahalo!”

However, the persistence of a tough economy in recent years has resulted in a downturn in our business. Under such circumstances, we have made the difficult decision to close down our four retail bakery locations (the Kahala, Waipahu, Beretania, and Dillingham stores) and to cease our other baker operations by the end of August 2018. The exact dates will be announced over the summer.

Although this has been a very difficult decision, we wish to express our heartfelt appreciation and ask for your understanding. Especially to all of our customers who have patronized our bakeries since we first opened, we thank you for gracing Saint-Germain with your warm aloha throughout the years.

Saint-Germain America, Inc.
