BEAVERTON, OR (KPTV) -

People gathered to celebrate the new look of a longstanding business in downtown Beaverton.

The city of Beaverton provided assistance in the renovation of Beaverton Bakery at 12375 S.W. Broadway St.

The result is an updated theater marquee sign, uncovered transom windows, a new awning and fresh paint.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony Wednesday gave the community a chance to check it all out.

"This is the heart and soul," said Mayor Denny Doyle about Beaverton Bakery's role in the city's downtown area.

Beaverton Bakery is celebrating 91 years in business.

"This street has never looked so good," said Carrie Ann Shubert, vice president of Beaverton Bakery.

Shubert credited the city and Doyle for helping to revitalize businesses and the entire downtown area.

The city offers a number of programs to assist local businesses with exterior and interior improvements.

Doyle said the work will continue throughout the area.

"I want the people to feel this is a community," he said. "We're not a big city and we are where people want to live."

Shubert said it's easy to see the positive effects of the city's efforts.

"We're really excited about what's going on here and the future of Beaverton," she said.

The bakery is offering a number of specials this week in honor of the new look and to celebrate 91 years in business.
