RICHMOND, Va. (RichmondBizSense.com) – Overwhelmed in its opening week, a startup doughnut shop has some holes to fill.
Sugar Shack, which opened June 11 to a line of eager customers, was forced to close its Carver shop for at least three days this week after getting pummeled by more doughnut-hungry Richmonders than it could handle.
The shop, at 1001 N. Lombardy St., was closed Monday and Tuesday with a sign in the door announcing: “We need to restock, reorganize and most importantly recover from this past week.” A Facebook post said the shop would reopen Thursday.
