Dude goes to a grocery store at 10pm the night before it opens just to be first in line?- you can't make this stuff up.

LOL - I remember that! They had to bring in the police to direct traffic...

And just how long did the novelty of Krispy Kreme last until they closed up shop?

Your right! Let's examine the similarities between the two:

1. One was a donut shop, and the other is a grocery store.

2. One was located in Latham, and the other in Colonie.

3. One sold two items, the other over 10,000.

Obviously, they're virutally identical businesses.
