At long last, Sugar Shack Donuts opens its doors

The new doughnut shop has been in the works for more than two years.

After a more than two year long wait, Sugar Shack Donuts in Lansdowne is finally opening. The store quietly opened its doors over the weekend to do training with its staff  — but before you run over there, you need to know they have unveiled limited hours for the rest of September.

The new schedule has Sugar Shack open Thursday through Sunday each week, from 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. They will be closed on Mondays, Tuesday and Wednesdays while their soft opening continues and they get their operations running smoothly.

It’s been a long time coming. Sugar Shack Donuts announced the Lansdowne location more than two years ago — but a reported paperwork snafu between the owners, landlord and surrounding HOA led to a long shut-down in construction while it was ironed out.

In some ways, the new gourmet doughnut shop couldn’t have come at a better time for doughnut fans. Just this summer, two other local doughnut shops closed their brick-and-mortar doors — Fractured Prune at the Village at Leesburg, and B Doughnut in downtown Leesburg.
