New Generation Dunkin’ Restaurant Opens in Lower Hudson Valley
You may have heard in September that after 68 years Dunkin Donuts was dropping the "donuts" and becoming simply Dunkin'.

A number of these new concept stores have been popping up around the U.S. since early 2018. Now one of the first in the area is opening in Hartsdale.
LoHud is reporting that the new store has opened near the Hartsdale train station. Some of the first things you'll notice are a newer, sleeker look, plus easier and more efficient ways customers can place and pick up their orders.
