The Old Dripp Donuts Building at 421 Market Street Has Been at the Center of a Serious Shreveport Controversy for Several Months Now.

What was once a thriving business in Downtown Shreveport serving some of the most incredible donuts suddenly closed. When they first closed it was just a closing until everything got sorted out. Shortly after that it turned into a huge mess.

Dripp Donuts announced to the community that they were forced to close its doors because there were some serious concerns over the structure of the building.

"By now, many of you are aware of the structural issues with the Dripp Donuts building at 421 Market St. The Downtown Shreveport Development Corporation is working diligently to determine the repairs / stabilization solutions required. They hope to have answers very soon."
