Good morning readers! For many of us, this Monday will be tougher than most — after all, it's our first Monday without access to Harold's Doughnuts.
Take a deep breath. We feel you. Everything's going to be OK. (No, really — everything is fine; Harold's isn't gone for good.)
Both locations are switching up their hours and will no longer be open Mondays, but it'll be business as usual come 6 a.m. Tuesday.
Only 24 more hours to go, dear readers. Stay strong.
