Customers pack Roma Bakery for its final day in business


WEDNESDAY, Sept. 25 — Roma Bakery and Deli is jammed with customers today as the longtime Lansing institution closes its doors after 50 years in business.

Filomena “Mena” Castriciano and her husband, Sostine, both Italian immigrants, opened Roma Bakery in 1969. The couple took over Frank Antonio’s Italian Market at Erie and Cedar streets before moving down Cedar in the mid-70s.

Roma Bakery's closing and the sale of its building at 428 N. Cedar St. was announced via Facebook in August. Filomena Castriciano declined to comment on who the building was sold to when asked by City Pulse.
