Uncle Nick’s Consolidates Into Original Southside Store

Uncle Nick’s, which has developed a following for its bagel sandwiches and Italian specialties, has closed its stores in downtown Lakeland, Edgewood Drive and Bradenton to focus on the original location, which opened three years ago at Shepherd Road and Old Highway 37. Co-owner Nick DeBellis Jr. said he has several offers to buy the downtown NoBay location and plans to sublease the four-unit space.
