UPDATE: Mebane’s new Dunkin Donuts is finally complete (the last electrical panel finally arrived), and the store will open Tuesday, January 31.
UPDATE: the opening has been delayed until Tuesday, February 7, according to employees who were inside the store on Saturday, February 4.
Future employees were undergoing training earlier this week in anticipation of the end-of-the-month opening.
Franchise owner Alex McCourt previously told The Alamance News almost six months ago that supply chain delays had held up the last item needed to finish the store, an electrical panel that has finally arrived and been installed.
