The news has residents both in and out of Florissant clamoring for the new spot.
“Very excited! I moved from Florissant to St. Peters last year. Now I can have my fall Pumpkin donuts again :),” Kristen Bergan Manning wrote.
“I grew up in Florissant, and grew up on Old Town Donuts,” John Flynn wrote. “It's one of my favorite childhood memories. I moved away to St. Peters years ago, and now you guys are opening up right down the road from me.
“I am ECSTATIC right now.”
Calls to management of Old Town Donuts were not returned.
For those worried that the 40-year-old business could be moving away from Florissant, the store reassures everyone that they’re staying put at 510 N. New Florissant Rd.
