Customers React To Loss Of Krispy Kreme Shop In Philadelphia
By Hadas Kuznits
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Folks in Center City have one more day to get Krispy Kreme donuts.
Those who work here at the Philadelphia Krispy Kreme donut shop on 16th street, tell me they’ve been consoling their customers after it was announced that this store will be shutting down December 30th.
“Some ladies who come in here, they say ‘I need a hug!’ And we’re like, it’s gonna be okay, it’s gonna be okay!” said an employee.
Reporter: “People get really attached to their donuts.”
Employee: “Yes, they do!”
Customers told KYW Newsradio they’re sad to see it close.
“But it’s so good and in the city it’s really good! I was walking with my kids and it’s the first thing we saw that they like,” said one customer.
“It’s kind of sad; I wish they’d stay open a little longer. I mean, everybody loves Krispy Kreme,” said another customer.
Reporter: “Do you come here a lot?”
Customer: “Yeah, I do.”
So what will they do now for their Krispy Kreme fixes?
“I don’t know, they gave us a list of their different locations. Perhaps I’ll try to find one of those locations,” one customer explained.
