A reader forwards us an interesting email from the property managers at 901 S. Plymouth Ct:
Hello 901 Residents,
As we prepare for the new commercial lease beginning in November with Not Just Cookies, a retail space for their bakery, 901 Cleaners have begun the process of moving their items from the space. They expect to be finished and no longer open and accepting packages as of October 8th.
If you have clothes at the cleaners currently, please plan to pick them up at earliest convenience, and note that further clothing drop offs will not be accepted.
Not Just Cookies will also be accepting packages when they move into the space, and we will post their hours once confirmed, but they are to have more consistent weekday and expanded weekend hours than the cleaners.
In the interim, we will be working with staff on accepting deliveries and storing packages for pickup onsite during business hours, and will have further details shortly on the process that will be in place in the down time between tenants while some light remodeling is being done.
Again, further details are to come and door drops with said info will be made early next week, but we look forward to the positive change.
Very interesting! Seems like there are some unknowns still, but if this is a legit bakery it's something that the neighborhood has been craving for some time. That being said, we're pretty sure the retail space is relatively small, so uncertain if this is just a retail spot for the distribution of Not Just Cookies.
Their website seems up-to-date, but doesn't have a ton of information. Here is how they describe themselves:
Not Just Cookies - NJC is a cookie company providing, natural desserts superior in quality and taste. Our cookies and pies are made with the finest ingredients. We offer select gluten free and vegan desserts that our rich in taste. Not Just Cookies is a certified Minority Business Enterprise (MBE). NJC was created ten years ago by Johnathon Bush.
It also seems as if Mr. Bush started the business in 2006 when he was 13. So we guess that means he's in his mid-20s?
Anyway, curious to hear more about this one!
