Retirement Closes Bakery


They say all good things must come to an end. And that’s true for one nearly two-decade old business in the Village of Clinton.

The Dessert Booth, one of the only bakeries in Clinton, is closing after 16 years in business.

Booth opened The Dessert Booth in 2002 on College Street in Clinton. In 2015, she relocated the business to Kirkland Avenue.
