Construction is wrapping up at a new donut shop (with a strong following) named Duck Donuts, coming to Dilworth next to Dolce in Kenilworth Commons. I spoke with owner Scott Plassman, and he told me the business is targeting Monday, September 14 for their opening, contingent on permitting and construction.
