VICTORVILLE-(VVNG.com): The Victor Valley community packed into a small and cozy bakery Monday to show their support for the reopening of M Cupcakes and Pastries, and by 3PM everything had sold out. On Sunday evening Victor Valley News reached out to the community asking that they show support to M Cupcakes n Pastries, whose owners were forced to close their business temporarily to care for their son that was injured by gunshot wounds from the San Bernardino Mass shooting December 2, 2015.
The long lines, at some points went past the doorway of the store and television media were at their location in preparation for their reopening. By the afternoon the once-full shelves were nearly bare while the line continued to grow with customers eager to show their support while purchasing one of their delicious specialties.
“Sold out for today! Also just stopped by its bitter-sweet because me and the little one, [we] didn’t get there in time, but the fact that they sold everything today is so awesome,” said Joyce Allison Dy.
Heartbroken by the story of a family that many customers have grown to love, crowds of customers paid a visit to the friendly store owners. “My heart goes out to them. I will be stopping by to buy their delicious macaroons,” said Violet Sierras.
Although some were unable to make it on time to purchase some baked favorites, many say they will be heading over later in the week. “I will be there sometime this week to show my support for this family and their business. I’m so very proud to be a member of this community,” said Margie Larriva.
The son of the owners, Larry Venoya is on the road to recovery after being shot in the leg and the back by what is now to be a terrorist related attack. The family says that their son still has a long road ahead of him, but is expected to make a full recovery.
