It was June of 2016 when we first heard the news that Krispy Kreme would open a location in Auburn before Christmas, and people were crazy excited to get their hands on those delicious doughnuts.

Christmas came and went. No Krispy Kreme in Auburn. People kept waiting and waiting. Then, it was reported there were design delays, whatever that meant.

But now, for real, Krispy Kreme in Auburn has announced their grand opening on Monday, January 15 at 410 Center Street. They'll have random doughnut prizes during their first week. Plus, on the opening day, the first guest gets to turn on the new Hot Light.
