signs: Neldam's Danish Bakery
Not the greatest sign ever, but this venerable institution has been in the news recently. Neldam's Danish Bakery has been at this location in Oakland for 80 years. According to the Oakland Tribune, Neldam's is facing eviction. Declining sales forced them to sell the building and scale back operations, and they and the new landlords have been trying to work out a solution since. They're accepting donations to help finance a move and expansion, but time will tell if that's enough. I'm not sure where they plan to have the main bakery, but they mention a "new, more modern, and greener bakery, along with 4 branches" and list Oakland, Alameda, Emeryville, Pinole and they hope Antioch.
