Bill’s Donut Shop on North Main Street in Centerville closed July 1 for a week of renovations. It is set to reopen at 3 p.m. July 8, co-owner Jim Elam told this news organization.

New air conditioning units will be installed as will new doughnut display cases, he said. The store’s parking lot will also be repaved.

Owners chose to close the store during the first week of July because of road closures from Centerville’s Fourth of July celebration known as the Americana Festival. With nearby roads closed, business at Bill’s Donuts usually slows down that week anyway, Elam said.

Bill’s Donut Shop has been named one of the best places for doughnuts by several national publications.

Last year, Business Insider ranked Bill’s Donut Shop No. 2 on its list of “The 15 Best Donut Shops in America.”
