We have some sad news to pass on, cookie lovers…

One of Victoria’s beloved bakeries announced it will be soon be closing its doors after only 5 years in business.

Open since 2016, the Cookie Guy announced on Facebook they will be closing their doors, citing many challenges due to COVID-19.

The specialty shop specialized in making freshly baked cookies delivered warm directly to customers.

The Cookie Guy, founded by Matthew Davis in 2016, first opened in downtown Victoria then later relocated to Uptown Shopping Centre where they are currently located.

“Thank you for 5 years of unbelievable support. I regret to share with you the news of our closure,” Davis said in a Facebook post.

“During the pandemic, we’ve faced and overcome many challenges. But it makes sense for us to close for now.”

The store will reopen this Friday, Saturday and Sunday — or until they deplete their ingredients.

“We hope it makes it through to the end of the weekend but no guarantees,” Davis said.

While we may be saying goodbye to the Cookie Guy for now, there were hints in the statement suggesting a possible comeback.
