While it does happen in more populated areas, it feels like combination businesses really excel in smaller towns and in rural areas.  Often, these businesses are done out of necessity.  There just is not enough business to keep a small engine repair shop busy and there is not enough business to keep a sign making business operating.  So, in order to make enough money, the two businesses are combined.

Sometimes, we see this lead to some combinations that don't really make a lot of sense.

One of the more unique combinations that we have ever seen is located in the small Maine town of Oakland.

Gun Gal Bullets & Bakery is a combination bakery and gun shop!  You did not miss-read that.  A bakery and gun shop!  Only in Maine!

One of the great things about the business is how it excels at both.  If you scroll through the company Facebook page you will see a mix of posts about pistols, long guns, ammunition, donuts, cupcakes, and amazing looking cream puffs.  Based on the pics on their Facebook page, they even do birthday and wedding cakes!

Leah, the owner, says that, in addition to firearms and ammo, she stocks (or, is planning to stock) archery supplies and survival gear.  She also plans to bring in a bunch of hunting supplies before the start of hunting season.

Find Gun Gal Bullets & Bakery at 78 Water Street in Oakland.  You can call them at 207.716.1441.  You can also find them on Facebook.

If you are looking for a tasty treat, some ammo, or a new rifle, stop by and check them out

Leah says that they have been open since Black Friday 2022 and she plans to have a grand opening in the near future.  We wish her all the best with the new business!
