The McArthur’s Bakery Café location at 13700 Olive Blvd., will close its doors for good  Sunday, Jan. 21. Owner Scott Rinaberger made the announcement in a Facebook post today, Jan. 18, citing changes to its online ordering and delivery platform:

“Imagine: it’s just two hours before your big celebration. You’re rushing around, getting everything ready, and the last thing you need is to go out of your way to pick up a cake. With our new online ordering platform, you won’t have to. We’ll bring the cake directly to you!

“As exciting as this new system is, it does not come without a cost. McArthur’s has a limited production capacity and resources with our ovens running nearly 20 hours a day during most of the year. As a result, difficult decisions must be made in regards to where we are and where we are heading.

“One of these difficult decisions is the closure of Chesterfield’s Olive Boulevard location (13700 Olive Blvd.) at the end of business this Sunday, January 21st. This closure will free up many valuable resources, allowing us to focus on serving more people in St. Charles County, Jefferson County, and several communities in Illinois without brick and mortar.”

Tina Tebbe, a spokesperson for McArthur’s Bakery Café, said Rinaberger declined requests for comment.

This is the second McArthur’s Bakery Café closure in recent months. The location at 6630 Delmar Blvd., closed on Sunday, Oct. 1, 2017.

The company still has three locations at 3055 Lemay Ferry Road in South County, 210 N. Kirkwood Road in Kirkwood and 158 Long Road in Chesterfield.
