Santa Clara’s legendary Stan’s Donuts is still open for business.
The Mercury News mistakenly reported three days ago that the Mission City business closed. That upset a lot of Stan’s loyal customers. But that story has been deleted from the site.
But the paper corrected themselves two days ago. But not before we heard from a lot of Stan’s loyal customers who were upset about the bad reporting.
It also demonstrates once again how the Mercury News frequently makes mistakes about cities outside of San Jose’s borders, especially Santa Clara.
Looks like they misread a press release about the closing of another Stan’s Donuts Los Angeles even though it’s clear in the first sentence. Whoops.
That business is located in Westwood near the UCLA campus. It’s a 5-hour drive and 343 miles south of Santa Clara Stan’s Donuts. Double whoops.
Our Stan’s Donuts has been open since 1959 serving great donuts and our community. During the COVID-19 crisis, they’re serving customers take-out only. They’re open from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 2628 Homestead Road.
Get there early for the best selection. And don’t be surprised if the chocolate donuts go quickly.
