    Running to the baker's

    Dear teachers

    Is this construction OK?

    I nearly couldn't find the baker's open, so I ran like a mad man because I knew it closes at 7:30 pm.

    Thank you

    "Nearly couldn't find the baker's open" doesn't make any sense.

    I ran like a mad man cause I knew the baker closes at 7 PM.

    How would you rephrase that sentence in particular?

    Thanks

    I think you mean something like:

    I was afraid the baker's would close before I got there, so I ran like a mad man.
