Today’s last day for two Dayton doughnut shops

DAYTON — The Donuts by Thacker’s shops at 518 Wilmington Ave. (at Irving Avenue) and at 1712 E. Third St. are scheduled to close for good today.

The Wilmington Avenue location has been in business for more than 40 years.

Randy Thacker, co-owner and manager of the Wilmington Avenue location, said there are no current plans to reopen elsewhere.

The strip shopping center on Wilmington Avenue that houses the doughnut shop — and which also includes a Chicago Gyros and Dogs restaurant, Radio Shack and Smokers Plus shop — is owned by the nearby Hospice of Dayton, which has plans for the property, Thacker said.
