Pratzel's Bakery

Special | 5m 38s

Jim Kirchherr discovers the history of Pratzel's Bakery. A kosher bakery specializing in bagels, Pratzel's was founded in North St. Louis in the early 1900s and has moved its retail operations to follow the St. Louis Jewish population ever since. As a kosher operation, their factory closes an hour before sunset on Fridays, when a rabbi locks the doors for the Sabbath.
