On its Facebook page, Bear Creek Donuts’ owners on Tuesday wrote:
“With the current state of lockdown, considering both employee and customer safety, and the fact we may have seen tumbleweeds blowing down the street today (okay, small exaggeration), we have decided to shut down tomorrow at noon until April 6. So 6 a.m. to noon Wednesday is your last chance to get donuts for a little while. However, we will be back. Stay healthy and happy ya’ll. Don’t forget to come visit when we reopen!”
>> Amid pandemic and closings, a new carryout restaurant opens in Kettering
We placed some calls this morning, on Wednesday, March 25, and found several doughnut shops still open. We haven’t reached them all, so consider this just a sampling, not a comprehensive list.
-- First, an employee of the Dunkin’ Donuts on Woodman Drive in Riverside said her shop is open from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. today, and she said all other Dayton-area Dunkins remain open as well. There are nine Dunkin’ stores in the Dayton-Springfield area: Kettering, Centerville, Sugarcreek Twp., Fairborn, Washington Twp., Springfield, Dayton, Beavercreek and Riverside.
-- Donut Palace Huber Heights: Open from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. today
-- Donut Palace Trotwood: 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
-- Duck Donuts, Dayton: 6:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
-- American Classic Donuts, Dayton: 5 a.m. to 5 p.m.
-- Donut & More, downtown Dayton: 6:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
-- Ulbrich’s Hometown Bakery (we checked the Englewood location): 6 a.m. to noon
We hope to update this list as we get more information.
