Affton (KSDK)--Haas Baking Company closed Friday after 87 years in business.

The bakery opened in Soulard in 1925, but eventually moved its operations to Affton as it grew.

The company posted a note on its doors thanking customers and saying declining sales and the economy are to blame for the decision.

Haas was known for its Gooey Butter Cake and was one of the first bakeries in St. Louis to offer the treat.
