Hey, did anyone else see the pickup truck with the Krispy Kreme banner and the three middle-aged people holding up another KK banner on the opposite side of N. Lombard (University of Portland district) yesterday? Looked to me like they were hawking Krispy Kreme donuts. At least they were holding the boxes and displaying the merchandise. Since Krispy Kreme is pretty particular about the condition (fresh, hot) of their product - to the point of refusing to sell boxes of donuts in Washington that were to be transported to Oregon for resale prior to the opening of outlets down here - I was confused by the sight of these people standing in the rain and the cold, apparently hawking KK donuts.
Anybody know the story here? As far as I know there are no Krispy Kreme donut shops in North or Northwest Portland.
