Whisk from Scratch, an artisan bakery and deli in downtown Perham, announced December 5 on its Facebook page that it will close its doors on December 30 due to a lack of business.
Daniel and Holly Flatau are owners of the business. A statement on the deli's Facebook page read:
"It is with great sadness we announce our doors will be closing Saturday, Dec. 30, 2017. Unfortunately there wasn't enough business to continue our journey.
"We can't begin to express how much we have enjoyed being a part of your lives the last year and a half. We will miss the community greatly and hope the community will continue to strengthen and grow quality conscious businesses.
"We encourage you to use your Five-Star points and gift cards before we close.
"As always, please remember to support your local businesses."

Within hours of the post, more than 40 comments were left with a mix of sadness and well-wishes.
Whisk from Scratch opened up its downtown location in May of 2016. It gained local attention this past summer when Senator Amy Klobuchar ordered dozens muffins and scones from the Perham bakery to be sent to Washington D.C. for a senate meeting there.
