I took this pic during the fall of 2002 I believe. I think Krispy Creme was planning on tearing this one down and rebuilding it. Last I saw it was in 2005, and it was still up. I think plans fell through for redoing it.

  1. They decided, after much community outcry, to indefinately postpone the “remodel”. Rumour had it that the city was going to force them to rebuild smaller if they tore down that that had an effect on the decision as well. What may not be remembered is that in addition to this site and one on Virginia Beach Blvd (still currently active), there used to be a Krispe Kreme on Indian River Road. The building is still there, but has been revamped to be a Chinese take-away with a small eat-in dining area. You can tell by the sloping roof and the interior windows that it in fact was the ever famous KK, even though the logos are long gone.
