Local businesses coming together creates a pretty sweet ending to a disastrous 2020.
Amy’s Donuts, which is almost always open every day of the year, closed up on Christmas day, only to discover that the building had been vandalized while they were out.
Times have been really hard on us this year. We’ve done our best to stay positive and try to make it through. It’s not…
With a year like the one we’ve all been experiencing, it’d be hard for any local business to add this kind of disappointment to its days. Soon after the incident, Amy’s Donuts posted the following on Facebook:
“The curfew has been detrimental to our sales and now to add the costs of the damages, it’s a lot. We have made it thus far with all of your support and we hope to keep our doors open serving this great city for as long as possible.”
Since the news spread about the vandalism, the community either showed up virtually and in-person for the doughnut shop, expressing their love and concern on Facebook, Instagram, or by stopping in to buy a decadent pastry.
A local business even stepped in to help beautify the shop with repairs.
“We’d like to give a very special shout out to Richard Main from Vista Glass! When he saw what happened, he reached out to us and offered his services! We’re very grateful for him and his company because we have working doors again!”
Despite the obstacles, it’s hard to keep a sweet destination down.
Amy’s Donuts is normally open until midnight, but for the time being, they’re closing at 9 p.m. — still plenty of time to snag yourself a sweet one before the new year.
Amy’s Donuts is located at 101 E. Ft. Lowell Rd. For more information, including donut varieties and other inquiries, visit amysdonuts.com.
