Baker man

Published June 30, 2003 / by Steve Berentson

Frank Michaud gets up at the crack of dawn … and hundreds of hungry Anacortes residents are glad he does. Frank is owner and chief baker at The Store, a business with deep roots in this community. Old timers knew the store as “Jorgie’s,” and even older timers knew it as “Brunson’s.” In addition to traditional mom and pop grocery items, The Store features the bakery, a deli, The Cellar at The Store (fine wines) and a line of Triple-Certified (shade grown, organic and bird sanctuary friendly) coffees, roasted daily to ensure freshness. The store is open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week. (See article and more photographs in Activities section, under “Mom and Pop.”)

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
