Overnight power outage hurts donut production at LaMar's midtown kitchen

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – No power means no donuts. The LaMar’s Donuts midtown location lost electricity overnight while bakers were preparing the day’s donuts. 

The bakers were able to bake several dozen donuts before the storms hit and the power went out, but the outages greatly reduced the number of donuts the kitchen typically produces.

Customers were surprised as they entered the store early Tuesday to see the shelves practically bare. 

The location on Main Street near Linwood Boulevard planned to restart production in the mid-morning once power returned to the store so it could ensure the location had enough donuts for its normal operating hours. 

The midtown location provides donuts to two stores.
