TOLEDO, Ohio — A big move for a downtown bakery will bring some sweet treats to west Toledo, right near the University of Toledo campus.

Jera's Heavenly Sweet is moving to 3059 W. Bancroft St. next to University Barber Shop. The Black-owned, local bakery was formerly located at One Seagate but will now reopen at the new location in February.

On Facebook, Jera's Heavenly Sweet announced the move out and teased photos of the W. Bancroft Street location ahead of the move in.

Jera's was featured in a June article that highlighted Black-owned businesses and the support they received from the community in the wake of the death of George Floyd and during the ensuing push for social justice. 

"We appreciate any of the help that's coming in. There are some major things going on and some hearts are being changed. And I look forward to those changes," Jera's Heavenly Sweets owner Jera Stewart said.
