Hudson Valley customers were shocked after pulling in for a cup of coffee and finding their favorite shop closed for business.

If your morning routine involves stopping at the same place every morning for coffee and breakfast you can imagine how jarring it would be to find it suddenly closed. That's what happened to hundreds of Dutchess County commuters who were stunned to find their local Dunkin' had shut its doors.

On Wednesday the doors were locked and the drive-thru menu boards were shut off at a usually busy Dunkin' on Route 9. A sign on the door explains that the store is completely closed down for an extended period of time.

The Dunkin' on Route 9 in Hyde Park near the Stop & Shop is currently undergoing renovations. The extensive work began on Monday, which closed the restaurant's lobby. The entire store, including the drive-thru, closed on Wednesday and is not expected to reopen for three weeks.

In the message posted on its door, the Hyde Park Dunkin' is directing customers to the restaurant's new location across from Marist College at the Chestnut Mobil Station.
