A well-known food brand has denied speculation that one of its stores in Bristol is closing. American chain Krispy Kreme said that its store in Avonmeads Retail Park, in St Philips, will remain open but that a big change to the store will be happening.

The doughnut specialist has three stores in the Bristol area, the others at The Mall, at Cribbs Causeway, and Cabot Circus.

The Avonmeads store was famous for having production visible to customers and at random points in the day, people could watch their doughnuts being made. But the in-house production facility will be closing.

Krispy Kreme said that it wanted to become more efficient, which is why the onsite production at Avonmeads will stop. Fresh doughnuts will be delivered daily to the store.

A Krispy Kreme spokesperson said: “We are pleased to inform our valued local customers that our shop at Bristol Avonmeads Retail Park will remain open.
