Crumbs Bake Shop is no more after the publicly traded cupcake company announced it was shuttering operations at its stores Monday evening, giving employees little more than a day's notice.The company has ceased operations as it evaluates its limited remaining options, one of which could include a bankruptcy filing, a spokesperson said in a statement. At the time of listing in mid-2011, shares soared above $13 a share. However, with little diversity among its high-calorie offerings, New York-based Crumbs quickly began to slide. Since then, shares have cratered 99.7%, a response to bleeding profits and underperforming locations.
