The area's remaining Krispy Kreme store, at 3350 Secor Rd., is to close May 21 as the North Carolina doughnut chain attempts to right itself financially.
The company will still distribute its products to area Kroger and Speedway stores, but sales at those outlets undercut sales at the Secor Road store.
The local operation has 35 full-time employees. The Winston-Salem company acquired the Secor Road store in 2003, along with a store on Airport Highway that has since closed.
