Shoppers will soon be able to indulge in a sweet treat in between searching for bargains as a new Krispy Kreme shop is set to open in a shopping centre.

The doughnut retailer is opening at St. Ann’s Shopping Centre, in St Anns Road, Harrow, at 10am on Thursday, June 22.

There will be 16 varieties of the “melt-in-the-mouth treats” including the Original Glazed and Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Crème, as well as Krispy Kreme coffee.

Hundreds of free doughnuts will be dished out at various locations across the area during the lead-up to opening.

There’s also a Gold Card on offer for the first person in the queue on opening morning, which will entitle the holder to a double-dozen doughnuts every month for a year.
