Some Hudson Valley residents are very disappointed a premier eatery is closing its original store.

Last August, when Hudson Valley Post got a sneak peek of The Academy, one of the Hudson Valley's most anticipated hot spots, we were told The Newburgh Flour Shop, a family-owned bakery, would be opening up a second location inside The Academy in Poughkeepsie, New York.

This week, the owners of The Newburgh Flour Shop confirmed a major change that some residents feared. See more below.
