While there has been zero activity inside their future location between Whole Foods and Strosnider's, Fractured Prune is still planning on opening up for business in the near future. According to the company, they hope to be up and running by December or January.
The Prune could also face some unexpected competition in the doughnut arena, as Dunkin' Donuts just signed a deal to bring ten new locations to the D.C. area, one of which will be in Silver Spring. Whether the store will be in downtown Silver Spring or some SSINO Siberia remains to be seen.
Personally, I won't be satisfied until someone builds a store with a giant doughnut-shaped sign.
Of course all of these are poor substitutes for the old Montgomery Donuts on Wayne (RIP).
