WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Johnson's Bakery in Waterloo will be closing its doors after 63 years in business.

Owner Dennis Johnson announced Monday morning that he will retire.

The last day of business is July 14.

The bakery was started by Johnson's parents, the late Herbert and Marie Johnson, as a donut shop in 1950. In 1957, the shop moved to its present location at 820 West Fifth St. in Waterloo.

Dennis owns and operates the bakery and runs production nightly, while his sister, Sharon King, manages the bakery during the day and specializes in cake decoration, according to the bakery's website.

Johnson's Bakery has items in grocery stores around the Cedar Valley, including Fareway stores, Hometown Foods, 18th Street Conoco, Randall's in Hudson and Sub City franchises.
