I miss my Sunday donuts :(

Does anyone know what happened? Are they closed forever?

I don't know if this is true or not but I heard that the folks who own Alamo Donuts next to Hastings also own(ed)Daylight Donuts. Daylight is a trademark, so maybe they didn't want to pay to have the name anymore. Again it's hearsay so don't hold me to it.

That shop too was closed this weekend. I really hope they are not going out of business. Customer service was on the weak side but the donuts were pretty good.

It was closed this morning as well. Guess the only places to get donuts now are Wal-Mart and Lowes grocery.

The latest RUMOR I've heard is that Daylight was sold to a new owner, but then the health department inspected the premises and gave them notice to correct several things that were below standard. They are closed until the corrections are made. Not related to the one by Hastings.

Alamo Donuts (the one by Hastings) was still closed today. They are related because they do not bake donuts there. They make them at Daylight Donuts and transport them to Alamo Donuts.

I was told by someone at Daylight donuts a few weeks ago that it had new owners, so that much at least is true. Hope it reopens soon, I haven't had many cravings but now I suddenly really want donut holes:)

Doesn't the Health Department put up some kind of notice saying that the facility is closed for health department reasons?

I know that's how it is handled in other states, I just am not sure about NM.

Possibly the family had a tragedy? Who owns it?

Agree on the customer service, especially the 50 something year old woman who works the drive thru. The older man is no charmer either. Those donut holes are good though. I hope they read this and improve their attitude even if they sold the place.

I sent an e-mail to Daylight Donuts and they were not even aware that the store in Alamogordo was closed. They said they would do some checking.

I checked the sign on the door at Alamo Donuts today when I stopped by Pet Sense. The sign stated that they would be open tomorrow (Feb. 1). I don't know if the same goes for Daylight Donuts or not. I would assume so since they were baking the donuts for Alamo Donuts.

I wish Sunrise was still around. Their donuts were 100% better than the ones at Daylight. And at least twice as big!

Sputnuts was located in those little "strip" office building on the South side of 10th St. across from the Winner's Circle.

Ok. I was born in 75 so it may have been before my time.
