Vie de France Bakery Closing in Plaza America

Vie de France (Photo via Flickr/Stefano Fulgoni) (Updated at 5:40 p.m.) The French bakery in Plaza America will serve its final croissant this weekend.

Vie de France Bakery will close its 11642 Plaza America Dr. location on Saturday, management said, noting the company is seeking to reopen in Reston or nearby.

“We’re looking for a location now,” bakery director Francoise Cuzor said Wednesday. “The lease expired and Vie de France is taking this opportunity to relocate the Plaza America shop to another center.”

The bakery has operated in the 13-acre shopping center that includes Whole Foods Market, Ann Taylor Loft and Michaels for more than 15 years, manager Sonia Alvarenga said.

The leasing agent for Plaza America, Atlantic Realty Associates, did not immediately respond to an inquiry about the closure.

Vie de France has other locations in Kensington, Potomac and Rockville, Maryland, and near the L’Enfant Plaza Metro station.
