them. In 1993, the cooperative that owned Harris Bakery built a new ultra modern bakery at 2301 S. First Street and moved out of downtown. This move left all of the buildings vacant from the bakery offices on Elm Street east to the corner of First Street and south to the building occupied by Ruth Davis's Favorite Tuxedos and Patti Herz's PHI Designs. In order to acquire any of the buildings, Collins Haynes and his partner, David Bogle, had to buy all of the Harrisproperty, including the large building at the corner of Elm and First streets. The Harris Bakery built this concrete and steel building about 1961 for their bread wrapping department. Haynes sold the bread wrapping building and bought his partner's interest in the venture.

Haynes agreed to build them a new four story building on the vacant lot just south of the Iron Horse Coffee Shop. This lot had been covered over with asphalt by the Harris Bakery and used to park their bread trucks.
