Visions for Vacancies: Krispy Kreme
What would you like to see in the vacant building on Reisterstown Road in Owings Mills?
It's hard to forget the fanfare of when Krispy Kreme came to town. The delicious, fluffy, fresh donuts became another option for those looking for a different kind of donut.
The store closed its doors in May 2008 when Krispy Kreme closed several underperforming stores. Was it the location? Was it the fact that it was in close proximity to three Dunkin' Donuts locations? Who knows. But that building has set vacant, with Krispy Kreme's awnings still attached (sort of, see the photos) for nearly four-and-a-half years.

Is there a commercial vacancy you'd like to discuss? If so be sure to email editor Marc Shapiro (firstname.lastname@example.org) and maybe it will be featured in the next Visions for Vacancies.
