The council approved a lease agreement with Port Townsend bakery Pane d’Amore to move into a building on the former Gull Service Station lot that Councilman Ted Miller has unofficially renamed Centennial Square.
“I think this is a great fit. And it’s a great location for them,” Councilwoman Candace Pratt said.
Pane d’Amore currently has a retail spot in Sequim at 150 S. Fifth Ave.
Linda Yakush, owner of the bakery, said the business plans to move to the building sometime next month.
“It’s a perfect business for the downtown core,” Hays said.
Products will continue to be baked in Port Townsend and delivered daily to Sequim.
Pane d’Amore will pay $1,000 per month over 12 months under the terms of the lease.
First month discount
The bakery will get a discount on its first month’s rent, City Attorney Craig Ritchie said, for improvements to the roof, exterior, interior and windows.
The city bought the property for $215,000 from Gull Industries on June 14.
The station closed in the mid-1980s.
