Jason Bockman of Strange Donuts Buys World's Fair Donuts in Shaw

In a call with the Riverfront Times this afternoon, Strange Donuts owner Jason Bockman confirmed that he has purchased longtime local favorite World's Fair Donuts in Shaw.

The shop has been shuttered in recent months due to health and personal reasons for former owners Peggy and Terry Clanton, who had operated the shop at 1904 South Vandeventer Avenue since 1974. Bockman will not be changing the name of the shop or the menu, adding that he has purchased it under a separate LLC apart from Strange Donuts.

"It will be the same name and the same menu," Bockman says. "And don't expect to see marketing or Instagram posts from World's Fair: Itโ€™s $1 coffee and classic donuts at a classic donut shop."
