Klappenbach Bakery, the venerable pastry and bread establishment in Fordyce that had to close after a fire in May, will reopen Sept. 22, Paul Klappenbach says. Except for new wall colors, everything will be the same at the bakery, where a big menu includes cinnamon, rye, pumpernickel, wheat, French and other breads, Danishes, donuts, brownies, pound cakes, and sandwiches, including Reuben, cheese steak and chicken salad. Klappenbach was opened 32 years ago by Norman and Lee Klappenbach. The bakery is open for lunch Tuesday through Saturday at 108 W. Fourth St. Call 870-352-7771 for more information.
