I love dunkin' donuts... just throwing that out there; I have never had anything but good food, excellent coffee and the most amicable of employees. We are on a "Megan's Coffee" basis, it's awesome :))

The in-store DD at the Stop & Shop on North Main Street in Southington, CT has closed permanently. It's a recent change. My mom said it was still open last time she went to that Stop & Shop before Christmas. Stop & Shop is now offering free fresh hot coffee for its customers until 4PM.

The other week I just realized that theres a different newer version of the dunkin donuts logo

Old version:


Newer version


I guess this happened a year or so ago? the cup part is different (cup outlines in brown now, says DD on cup instead of dunkin donuts, and square is orange and pink instead of just pink)

Mashantucket, Connecticut outside of MGM Grand/Foxwoods Casino still has the old logo in April 2010
I've noticed that many DD's in Mass & Connecticut still have the old logo, while most in NH are updated (I only know of one in Nashua that remains old)

Forgot to mention that the Dunkin Donuts in the food court at The Meriden Square Mall in Meriden, CT closed during the summer of 2010. The whole space is completely gone. Replaced by more seating.

Apparently they plan on Remodeling the Dunkin Donuts at 856 Queen Street in Southington, Connecticut. Their was a building permit in the paper that said  Hartney and Owens, 856 Queen St., sign, $9,000. and Hartney and Owens, 856 Queen St., remodeling, $16,000. I Googled 856 Queen Street and it came up Dunkin Donuts.

I've gotta get a picture of the building's new look. I believe there's an old photo of it on here, so I'll do a before and after.

The new exterior look of the Dunkin Donuts at 856 Queen Street Southington, CT. The renovations were complete a couple months ago. Took the picture from across the street on 8/1/12. It was raining.

Mine was rebuilt not too long ago. It looks similar to this one:

Dunkin Donut's is building a new store at 1096 West Street (Route 229 in Southington) at the corner of Corporate Drive. This will be on the same property where they're building the new Hilton Homewood Suites Hotel. This one will reportedly will replace the one inside The Mobil Gas Station a little further down West Street.

Dunkin Donuts is building a new location in the Forestville Commons in the Forestville section of Bristol, CT, but construction has been halted because the contractor has been naughty. http://bristolpress.com/articles/2013/07/02/news/doc51d23a23a69a6377008207.txt - One would assume that existing DD inside the Stop & Shop in the plaza will close. This new DD will be located along side the A&P Liquor Store.

The Dunkin' Donuts on Route 6 in Bristol, Connecticut on the corner of Shelia Court DOES NOT have a drive-thru. They weren't allowed by the city to have one at this location. Now across the street they are building a new Hobby Lobby and HL has employees from other stores in other states helping set up the store. Several of these people have commented "Whoever heard of a Dunkin' Donuts without a drive-thru?"  Cheesy

The Dunkin Donuts at 215 Eureka Road in Wyandotte, Michigan (between Biddle Avenue and 3rd Street) doesn't have a drive-thru either (although that's due to limited space, plus, it's a strip mall location that surprisingly had been updated to the current interior and exterior package in 2011) and neither does the DD/Baskin-Robbins combo further up Eureka near Dix-Toledo Highway in Southgate.

I can think of a couple in this area, but they are older locations where there isn't an option to add one.  The one in Greenport (Hudson) NY dates back to the days of counters with stools, is on a corner lot and has limited parking plus other properties right behind it.  There was also one in East Greenbush that was in an old gas station (again a small building and lot) but that was replaced with a newer store up the street a year or so ago.

On the other hand, there are a couple in strip settings (Coxsackie, Wynantskill at least) that DO have drive thrus, with you being required to go along the back of the whole strip and at least Wynantskill has the window on the back (rather than end/side) of the building, so it can be done in some places.

Of course, I'd have to guess there are also a few without drive-thrus in the bigger cities where people are more likely to walk or take public transport (would be kind of funny to see a city bus stop at the drive-thru, though :)

Here is an image of the dunkin donuts/baskin robbins in Taneytown,MD that was built to look like a house for whatever reason. I would understand more if it was the only retail around but their is other stores in the area that look normal so why they felt the need to make it blend in with the houses in the area is beyond me.

Could be local rules (even if there are other stores that don't "blend in" in the area - we have that to some degree here where the rules were changed so the newer buildings are supposed to blend in better but there are buildings that existed prior to the change and those they can't force to remodel.

The first picture is the (oldest) Dunkin Donuts in East Greenbush on Rts 9&20 - it has no drive thru, very small parking (the pavement & car you see in front of the trees are part of the Eckerd (old Albany Public) lot - the DD lot is the small part in front of the store) and was originally a Sunoco station.

The second shot is the Hudson (Greenport) location on the corner of Route 9 & Healy Blvd (this corner has DD& BK on opposite sides of Healy and the McD's on the other side of Rt 9 with driveway straight across from Healy).  It also has no drive thru and a small parking lot which is often filled beyond capacity (shot taken from across Healy - Rt 9 is to the right).  This store is also older (may even date back to when they had counter seats).

That East Greenbush one is now closed; a new one was built just down the road. The old one now is an office for an auto dealer called Michael's Auto Plaza.

Thanks for the update - I forget about posts from that long ago (2006 - wow!).  To add - the auto dealer had a lot next door and also the building behind the Dunkin was their repairs center (the dealership used to be Goldstein Subaru years ago).  They also had a building next to Dunkin that was their showroom, which Michaels tore down once they moved into the Dunkin building to make more lot space, as the property is kind of confined (former A&P/Star Market now True Value on one side, former Albany Public/GU/Big Al's Discount/Fays/Eckerd now Planet Fitness on the other) plus 9&20, Route 4 and a couple small roads surrounding the whole complex of the above mentioned buildings.

Connecticut Dunkin' Donuts news.

1. They never built one in Forestville Commons on Pine Street in the Forestville section of Bristol. The DD inside the Stop & Shop in the same plaza remains open.

2. The DD inside the Stop & Shop on Farmington Ave in Bristol remains open.

3. A new gas station is being built on the corner of Farmington Ave and Alexander Road in New Britain. It will feature a Dunkin' Donuts with a drive-thru.

4. The above mentioned new DD will replace the one in the Aldi's Plaza that doesn't have a drive-thru.
