GAYLORD, Mich. (WNEM) -

Cops & Doughnuts is expanding.

The business is opening a new “precinct” in Gaylord later this month inside Jay’s Sporting Goods.

The world famous donut store grew out of a local police department’s desire to save a historic business.

A doughnut shop and bakery in Clare that had been in operation since 1896 was just weeks away from closing when the police department banded together to buy it.

They called it “Cops and Doughnuts” and have been widely successful trading in on the stereotype. Not only selling pastries the size of coffee saucers, but merchandise poking good humored fun at themselves, this small-town business has gone worldwide.

The new “precinct” will be open 7days a week 8:30am – 5pm following the Grand Opening on Saturday, Oct. 17.
