It’s been almost four years since Dwayne and Juanita Daugherty purchased the former Craft Town building on the square in Salem to expand the H&R Bakery.

After lots of work, the couple is ready to unveil their work with a premiere and open house on Sunday, Dec. 1 from 2-6p.

Juanita and Dwayne Daugherty, left and middle, along with Mackenzie Robinson, the new general manager of H&R Bakery are excited for Sunday’s open house.

Join the cast of H&R Bakery for a red carpet opening of the new location. The staff will arrive in a limousine in the rear of the building. 

Walnut Street will be closed from 1:30-2:30p as the stars arrive on the Red Carpet and pose for a historic photo to connect the old and new H&R Buildings with guests and fans. 

Santa will be there to greet children from 3-4p with free cookies and cupcakes. 

The bakery will be open for regular business on Tuesday, Dec. 3.

You’ll find their famous donuts, cookies and pastries as well as a new offering of cakes and a variety of coffee drinks – and plenty of seating. 

The bakery has been around since after World War II when Warren Mahuron started it in a location near the current Eddie Gilstrap Parts Department.

Soon it was moved to its location on East Walnut Street and has operated there every since. 

In 1950, it became Weller’s Sweet Shop and then became H&R Bakery, named for its owners Harry and Rowena Missamore, who sold to the Daughertys.
