My family is related to the Shluker family by marriage. My great-grandfather Morris Schneider worked at the original Dekalb store with Sam Shluker. His youngest son Max Schneider operated the Valley Stream store. When I first posted about the bakery on, I received replies from several people with warm childhood memories of Shlukers Bakery.
