New Yorkers and tourists will be able to visit Krispy Kreme’s long awaited flagship store in Times Square starting on Sept. 15, the company announced Wednesday.

The 4,500-square-foot shop located at 1601 Broadway at West 48th Street was originally meant to open in May.

Krispy Kreme’s announcement of its new grand opening date comes at a time when the novel coronavirus has become less prevalent in New York City with an average infection rate of less than 1 percent in the last 12 days, according to data from the governor’s office.

NEW KRISPY KREME SNACKS AVAILABLE AT WALMART

Krispy Kreme’s flagship store will match the over-the-top nature that Times Square is famous for.

For starters, the location will operate 24/7 and serve hot and fresh doughnuts. It will also have the “world’s largest Hot Light” to signal where customers can get their fresh treats, according to a press release.
