Route 8 Donuts in Christiansburg sets opening day

By  | 

CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. (WDBJ7) On National Donut Day, one donut shop is busy preparing for opening day.

Construction crews at Route 8 Donuts are working on finishing touches for its grand opening on July first.

It will be Christiansburg's first stand-alone donut shop with about 50 different varieties.

The husband and wife owners tested icing and donut recipes and decided they had to share with the community.

"Basically my husband came to me one night and said 'what do you think about donuts?' and I said 'I love donuts what else do you need to know about them?' He said 'let's open up a donut shop,' and I have been on board ever since," said Kristen Nietzold, a co-owner of Route 8 Donuts.

One lucky person out of the first 150 customers in line on July first will have the chance to win free donuts for a year.

T-shirts and special offers will also be available when the store opens.
