WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- A popular donut shop is closing down to make way for new development in West Des Moines.
Lou King owns the Donut King on Grand Avenue. His building was purchased by a developer.
At the end of the month, King will close his store to make way for new businesses.
“I’m not ready to retire yet. The problem is just finding a place that's reasonably close to here that we can make work,” said King.
He's owned the Donut King since 1973, and he said he’s built a loyal customer base over time. King also said he's been blown away by the support of the community.
The Donut King will close for good on March 20.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help King set up shop somewhere else.
