You lose an hour of sleep, but it's not all bad news in Collingswood. There's even a free doughnut in it for you!
The worst part about losing an hour of sleep is...well, take your pick. But it doesn't have to be all bad. Here's five things that might take the edge off the change. 1. When you roll the clocks forward one hour at 2 a.m. Sunday (Saturday night for you party animals), Collingswood Fire Chief Keith Davis reminds you to take a look at your smoke detectors and change those batteries too. "We recommend you have a smoke alarm on every level and in every bedroom of your home," Davis wrote to Patch in an e-mail. "It is also a good time to practice a fire escape drill with the entire family," Davis wrote. "If anyone needs a detector or assistance changing batteries, they can contact the fire department." 2. For those who want a sweet escape from …

This afternoon, workers are erecting Krispy Kreme signage, including a main sign and a drive-through sign.
Beginning this morning—Tuesday, July 26—workers have been preparing to erect Krispy Kreme signage at the new location. The building, set at 1152 Haddon Ave., looks nothing like its former tenant, Kentucky Fried Chicken. Red awnings have been replaced with Krispy Kreme's signature green, and two signs are finally being installed to designate the new business. Included in Tuesday's signage installation were a main Krispy Kreme sign, and another—nearly identical and equally large sign—which has a drive through indicator attached. Crews also could be seen working inside, finishing the shop's interior setup. Krispy Kreme officials said their Collingswood branch, a long-awaited, highly anticipated site that will mark Krispy Kreme's first …

The doughnut shop will be the first suburban branch of the chain in the Delaware Valley.
People waiting for the first illumination of the “Hot Doughnuts Now” sign at Collingswood’s upcoming Krispy Kreme have just a few more months to wait. The store’s projected opening is set for late August, owner Brian Zaslow told Patch this week. Workers currently are gutting the future Krispy Kreme building, located at the intersection of Haddon Avenue and Cuthbert Boulevard on the borough’s border with Haddon Township. In recent weeks, the building’s exterior color changed from its red-and-white Kentucky Fried Chicken motif to the browns of Krispy Kreme. A Dumpster outside the building has quickly filled up as workers gut the interior for renovations. The shell of the building will be preserved—including the drive-through window—but with …
