Yes, I keep bagels and English muffins in the fridge because they don't get eaten fast enough. If I leave them on the counter they grow mold. I hate buying stuff and having to throw it away a week later because it spoiled.
I don't keep sliced bread in the fridge because I can usually manage to get through that quickly enough.

It is just DH and I. We don't go through bread, English muffins quickly. I will usually freeze half and refrigerate half. If I buy a crusty Artisan loaf for a meal I freeze what we don't eat and when I serve the second half, warm it on the oven.

I store bread in the fridge and freeze bread products that won't be used within a few days. I was visiting a cousin who has gone gluten free and she served the best english muffins ever. I think they were called Glutino english muffins. They were delish.
I keep all bread products in the freezer. Keeping them in the fridge just dries them out and, if they aren't eaten in a day or two, they go stale in the pantry.
I've never seen English muffins in the cold case in a store.
On another note, I learned how to make them from watching The Great British Bake Off earlier this year and had no idea they aren't baked,
WHAT??? Not baked? Do tell! I refrigerate all mass market bread products, we don't eat them fast enough. I haven't noticed any drying, probably to many chemicals preserving them Specialty and home made breads stay on the counter in bread box, they've got about two days life span.
I freeze hot dog buns all the time. I lack the gene to remember if I have them already when I buy brats or links, I'm always mismatched. My mom froze Wonderbread sandwich bread all the time.
English muffins are fried on both sides. I used to make them from scratch and I really want to do so again. They taste much better. Once you make the dough, you let it rise, then you roll them out and cut them into rounds and let them rise again. Then you fry them. It's pretty easy.
