I am writing to you today to tell you how I feel about the closing of Noah’s Bagels. Last week, on my way to the doctor’s office, I was so hungry that I asked if we could go to Noah’s Bagels. When I got to the store, there was a sign on the door that said “We Are Closed.” When I saw the sign, I was so disappointed! I couldn’t understand why Noah’s would be closing. My mom read in the newspaper and told me why Noah’s had to close so many of their stores.
I thought Noah’s was making a lot of money because every day I saw people going in and out of the store. I used to go there all the time, especially on Tuesdays. Going to Noah’s on Tuesdays was special because one guy named Dominic always greeted us with a smile.
I think the community of Malibu will really miss Noah’s Bagels because it was the only place in Malibu that you could get a fresh bagel or Challah. If anyone in Malibu feels the same as me, you can call this number: 1-800-931-NOAH (6624). Maybe if enough people get together and call that number, we can get the store reopened.
