The downtown area of Tulsa bids farewell to a familiar treat as Hurts Donut closes its doors at 111 S. Detroit Ave. The popular doughnut shop, known for its creatively decorated pastries and quirky names, ceased operations at this location recently, leaving patrons curious about the sudden closure.

While the Tulsa location’s website remained active, visitors noticed its absence from the official Hurts Donut website’s “Locations” section, signaling the end of its operation in the downtown district. Attempts to reach out to the franchise owner, Chris Schepers, for comment were unsuccessful, as he directed inquiries to the corporate offices in Springfield, Missouri. However, calls to the corporate office went unanswered, leaving the reason for the closure undisclosed.
