At Great Harvest Bread Company in Burke, customers can eat a freshly made bakery sandwich and complete some last-minute holiday shopping at the same time.

The local bread and other baked-goods company, which also has a location in Lorton, provides a variety of gift baskets and products like baked goods and tea towels for a last-minute holiday shopper on any budget.

According to Jeffrey Connelly, who owns the store with Jeanette Scott Moler, companies often buy employee gifts from Great Harvest Bread Company. Everything at Great Harvest Bread Company is made from scratch, according to Connelly. The ingredients are all-natural and fresh.
