Krispy Kreme, a favorite among doughnut lovers, vanished overnight from Santa Fe.

The doughnut shop was open Friday, but the store's sign at Cerrillos Road and Richards Avenue was down Saturday morning. Doughnut labels were still in place in display cases.

The store's automated phone system did not indicate a closure.

Store management declined to comment, and corporate media relations officials in Winston-Salem, N.C., did not immediately respond to questions.

The Krispy Kreme website lists a “temporary closure” for the Santa Fe location.

The store opened in October 2015. When the store first opened, more than 150 people waited in line through the night and in some cases through the previous afternoon.

The only other Krispy Kreme stores in New Mexico are three in Albuquerque. Krispy Kreme has about 360 locations in 43 states.

Their donuts were below average for donuts

This is great news during a sad time. KK may have employed a handful, but they've harmed far many. New Mexicans are facing a health pandemic of epic proportions, and our current levels of obesity are fueling the plague. Plus, KK is a huge chain. There's no better time to shop local - even if you're seeking out non-food items, like donuts.

Sorry to hear. However, America runs on Dunkin'.

Whose America? A nation of parrots.

This is terrible. Donut shops should be an essential service.

Richard Reinders

didn't they have a drive up window?

Good news for the diabetes epidemic.

Most likely first of many closures. The first hit was bad enough but this last one is going to finish some. More forever lost jobs for Santa Fe.

But, Joe Biden will save the economy across the US!

Are you thinking Joe Biden is currently President? Bless your heart.
