Since 1957, Mr. Treats Donut Shop has seen several hundred citizens walk through its doors on a daily basis.According to the owner Teresa Bellow, Mr. Treats will shut its doors for good this Friday, May 25, 2012.“My husband and I were planning to close it next week for vacation, but we decided to keep it closed. Whoever decides to buy it, I would love to see it kept as a traditional donut shop. It was a hard decision to make, but I have to take care of my family,” said Bellow. Bellow told the Borger News-Herald her family has faced a few medical issues and feels it would be the best thing to do. Mr. Treats has been a part of Bellow’s family for about 20 years.
