Dutch Girl Donuts set to reopen after closing due to staffing shortages in 2021

More than 1 ½ since Detroit's Dutch Girl Donuts closed, the bakery is set to reopen.

Dutch Girl on Woodward Avenue closed on Sept. 1, 2021, citing staffing shortages. That closure was announced as a temporary pause, but the iconic bakery went up for sale this April.

Now, the donut shop that has been baking up treats since the 1940s has a new owner and will be opening soon. Jon Timmer, the son of late owners Gene and Lauren Timmer, will make the family recipes, the bakery said.

A reopening date hasn't been announced yet. Keep an eye on the bakery's Facebook page for updates.
