This applies to all Shipley's Donuts locations. Their packaging is the problem. They have these small boxes that they squeeze the donuts into and let's face it they stink! We go and pick up a dozen donuts some with sprinkles and some chocolate iced, etc. When you bring them home it is one donut mixed together. They cram them all into this small box and the topping of one donut is on the back side of the other.

Shipley's need to invest some thought and consideration into a better packaging system. Customers want specific donuts. We don't come in wanting them crammed into a box with ingredients and toppings stuck onto all the other donuts in the box.

Not pleased and not coming back.

These are some of the best donuts in town! Krispy Kream donuts are good, especially when they're hot, but Shipley's are better hands-down especially when they come out. This location is very clean and the staff are very courteous and friendly. I always order the glazed donuts and they are great. On occasion I order the chocolate glazed, I love them. One huge tip, Shipley donuts are the best when they're hot. I recommend that you get there as early as possible, prior to 7:30am. If you get there later, they won't be hot, they'll probably be warm or even cold, and they won't be as good.
