What to you miss from your neighborhood "old school" Bakery?

I ask this because while in my local Wegman's earlier today, I realized that their bakery department just cannot compare with the neighborhood bakeries of my childhood. I remember every Sunday stopping at our local Bakery in Bay Shore, NY and getting those "white mountain" rolls, Parker house rolls, kaiser rolls....and the best--crumb buns with so many humongous crumbs,,we would pick off the sugary buns then get in trouble--but it didn't matter. The crumbs were well-worth the scoldings..fresh jelly donuts..and the salty/sweet bakery chocolate chip cookies...those black and white cookies. OMG. I'm getting sad just thinking about the fact I no longer live in an area with an old school bakery. Any comments or feelings?
