Thirty-seven years ago, Phil Pomeroy opened the Donut Nook. Do the math: that was in the 1970s. Although the world around the Donut Nook has changed in the many years since it opened, step inside and everything remains just as it was, from familiar faces, to the original '70s style décor, and last but not least, how the donuts are made: "By hand, like they're supposed to be," says Pomeroy. Pomeroy has seen other donut shops come and go, and vows he'll "still be here when Krispy Kreme goes away."
