First, the Krispy Kreme in the Prudential-Copley-giant-mall-complex-mega-thing closes. Then the Krispy Kreme locations in Saugus and Medford close. Now, Dunkin Donuts, while unfortunately not closing any time soon, has been sold. I guess there's hope yet that this city might stop being so obsessed with donut retailers.
In honor of these monumental occasions, I bring you the beta version of:
EEKA'S LIST OF PLACES IN THE BOSTON AREA WHERE THERE ARE TWO DUNKIN DONUTS LOCATIONS ON THE SAME BLOCK*
So far I have found:
- Dunkin Donuts on Causeway Street, across from TheFleetfAmericaTDNorthBankMcGapDisneyBarnGarden with the Dunkin Donuts in it
- Dunkin Donuts on Alewife Brook Parkway, across the rotary from the Dunkin Donuts
- Dunkin Donuts in the Fenway, on Boylston street, on the same block as the Dunkin Donuts on Mass Ave
- Dunkin Donuts in Lynn on Boston Street , about a block from the Dunkin Donuts on Boston Street
If you're aware of any more, please let me know and I'll add them.
*"Block" in this case refers to a major city block. I am aware that a few of these locations have a small side street in between the two establishments, but I think we can all agree that they definitely constitute two Dunkies locations being entirely too near one another
