Police Doughnuts

Well, that didn't take long.

It was just a couple months ago that I wrote about Police Doughnuts on Unusual Kentucky raving about their wares and their wacky concept. And now I just drove by there and noticed their sign has been taken down and the place is empty.

There's a message scrawled on the window that they're just closed for remodeling and will reopen soon. But if that's the case, why on Earth would they go to all the excruciating trouble of unmounting and removing the massive electric sign they had just finished installing on the front of the building?

Furthermore, I just called their number and it's been disconnected. They must be remodeling their phone number as well.

If they are indeed reopening soon, it seems clear that it's going to be a different concept, otherwise there'd be no need to ditch their brand-new "Police Doughnuts" sign or disconnect the phone.

I am colossally bummed now.

  1. It's nice that this place, unlike so many others that go out of business under the "We're remodeling!" ruse, this one actually stayed true to its word. Today they stand in that exact same spot, very much alive and kickin'. A victory indeed!
