Another doughnut shop to close in Leesburg

Loudoun doughnut lovers are losing yet another destination for sweet treats.

Following the recent announcement that Leesburg's B. Doughnut is closing its downtown shop, Fractured Prune Doughnuts, located in the Village at Leesburg near Cobb Movie Theatre, announced Tuesday it will close its doors Sept. 1.

The franchise storefront, part of the Maryland-based chain, opened in October 2017. Fractured Prune will continue to operate its food truck at locations around Loudoun County.

In a Facebook post Tuesday, store officials wrote:

"With a heavy heart, we would like to share the news that after two years our storefront in Village at Leesburg will be closing its doors this Sunday, September 1st. We will continue to operate our food truck and book events in the Northern Virginia area. We are immeasurably thankful for our loyal customers over the last two years and hope to serve you again at one of our mobile stops!"

Fractured Prune produces a cake doughnut -- made fresh and served warm for each order -- with options for up to 19 glazes and 15 toppings, or customers can choose from a list of recommended combinations.

Doughnut seekers may not have to wait long for a new shop to open, however. According to updates on The Sugar Shack's Facebook page, the Lansdowne Town Center location is expected to open in the near future.

My bad! Pies are tiny!

I do love donuts and I have the 24 pack to prove it. But I would never ever ever pay $2.50-4.00 for one, unless it came with a pilsner or a stout.


Amen! But, hey, it's Loudoun Co and if it's "in" or perceived as such, these bozos pay. Even if the product is "meh" if it's hot socially they "eat" it up! i.e., Mom's Apple Pie...come on, people, most of their stuff isn't worth the exorbitant cost...and those lies are tiny! Does anyone remember the old Hill High Orchard pies?! Now THERE was a pie! Costco beats them all. Size, price and usually taste... come honest!
