New Business to ‘Spread’ the Love on Madison Avenue

That’s Nuts expected to open next month in the space most-recently the home of Labella Cupcakes.

The sign for That’s Nuts — a new business on Madison Avenue specializing in gourmet nut spreads — went up on Thursday afternoon. 

The new business, located in the space most-recently occupied by LaBella Cupcakes, is expected to open next month.

That’s Nuts owner Meilio Bakich, said he’d like to keep a lid on more of the details until the store is closer to opening.

“I’m just trying to create a little mystique,” he said, smiling.

He shared that the store will also offer a deli, with a menu featuring “healthy and vegetarian” options.

There will also be a few gift items — including art and toys — for sale.

“It’ll be like an old-school Woolworth’s,” he said. “We’ll have some dollar toys to buy while you’re waiting for a sandwich.”

The front area of the store — located at 15208 Madison Avenue — will feature art from local artists.

“This is an idea I’ve been toiling with for a bunch of years,” he said.
“It’s just time. I decided to give it a shot.”

Earlier this month, the city’s architectural board of review approved the store’s paint and signage.

“This is a great area,” Bakich said. “There aren’t too many ‘for rent’ signs left in the city.”

I wonder if they will be selling Fromunda spread?

Good luck to the owner. It's always good to see new small businesses opening in Lakewood. I hope this is a very successful venture. Looking forward to trying it out.
