Full story: Berkshire Eagle

If another Dunkin' Donuts shop opens in Pittsfield, it won't be on a vacant parcel on upper North Street.

HA HA! That is great news! Every single one of those lousy stores causes tremendous amounts of useless traffic with carloads of idiots trying to pull into their parking lots. Every one is a nightmare for those of us driving by....think about it. With the exception of West Housatonic, all the stores seemed to have successful opened up without a proper traffic study.

Victory for the neighborhood!

Donut Man shops not only use the Dunkin' Donuts recipes, but they also purchase their products directly from Dunkin' Donuts.

It's not a Krispy Kreme, it's Donut Man. And they are a Dunkin' Donuts with a different name.

Yeah, the cost of a Bostone Cream is just outrageous. What is it? Like 89 cents?

How many cans do you have to pull out of the trash to save up for one of those babies?

Pittsfield needs jobs not more Donut shops. Donuts will make your BMI go way the hell up. That's all Pittsfield needs is more obese people.

Get a membership at one of the half-dozen gyms, or walk or jog or bike - you fat piece of crap.

Regarding jobs, go into any Dunkin Donuts shop. SURPRISE! People work there, thus jobs are created.

Do you look down your nose at those jobs? Then do something about it instead of whining like a woman.

What heck are you talking about HOMER? Have a problem with anger management? I lived in Pittsfield for 45 years when they actually had GOOD LIVING WAGE paying jobs!!! MORON!!!! If you are telling me that people can support themsleves on working at Donut shops then you are an imbecile! YES, however they do in fact provide a job! I'm not looking down my nose at anyone and I sure as hell am not whining since I don't even live there anymore. But, I do love my hometown and wish the bitching and moaning would stop so as to try and improve the job situation and quality of life in Pittsfield.
By the way I was making a joke about BMI (Body Mass Index)and getting fat from having more Donut shops. so much for humor. By the way numb nuts I do work out at 24 Hour Fitness and have my own punching bags I work out on at home. By the way you better get in as much walking while the weather is good because you will be stuck in your house for the looooong winter that is coming. Cabin fever anyone! Go get some donuts to put on the extra fat for hibernation.

PERSONALLY, I THINK THE BEST PLACE TO BUY DONUTS IS THE MORNINGSIDE BAKERY ON TYLER STREET. THE OWNERS WORK ON PREMISES ALL DAY AND THE GIRLS OUT FRONT ARE VERY FRIENDLY AND PERSONABLE. THEY HAVE THE BEST DONUTS. ONLY DOWNSIDE IS THEY DONT HAVE A DRIVE THROUGH SO YOU'LL HAVE TO GET OUT OF YOUR CAR, BUT ITS GOOD TO GET EXERCISE ONCE AND A WHILE.

Not true.. ALthough he does bake them at the old blimpie next to Dunks on First St. All Dunkin Donuts get their donuts from the Dalton Ave store.

Not only are DD owned by undesirabes, their donuts look good but taste lousy. Mr. Donut was 100 xs better but the 2 brothers who founded them both had a global plan: let Mr Donut go to East Asia and the Middle East, let DD rule in almost all of the Lower 48.

Never buy DD----------go to a local donut shop or a bakery. We have "Maryann Donuts" here in the Lehigh Valley --yum, yum, eat 'em up.

Merieta Altrichter started the Donut Shop in 1969. She made all the donuts by hand, mixing dough in a plastic bowl. In 1978, after moving to the present location, she changed the name to World's Best Donuts. People come from all over the world to eat our donuts. Customers have their pictures taken with their Donut Shop coffee mugs and then we put the pictures up on the walls and on the tables. We have pictures of our cup from almost every state and many foreign countries. Our Donut Shop cup has even flown on the Concord and has also been to Harvard!
