The recently opened Michele's Pies on Post Road East in Westport will be closed temporarily April 4 through April 12 but for a good reason.
Owner and head baker Michele Albano is jetting off to Orlando, Fla., to compete in the 2011 National Pie Championships. Every year since 2007, Michele has competed and won multiple first place awards in the championships.
During the championships, Michele will also be featured on the NBC's "Today Show" on April 8.
The store will reopen at 7 a.m. April 13. A grand opening celebration, with tons of free samples, will be held April 16 and 17.
