HAGERSTOWN -- The alley where Krumpe's Do-Nut Shop has made its home for 60 years has been named in the shop's honor, but a family representative says that might not be the final name.
The Hagerstown City Council voted Tuesday to rename the alley DoNut Alley after the shop.
Krumpe's Operations Manager Max Krumpe said fans of the shop are now asking the owners to petition for the alley to be named after the family instead of the donuts.
Not a day goes by that someone does not bring up the alley name to the shop, Max Krumpe said.
"We may keep it (this) way, but we might try to change it," he said. "We like DoNut Alley but Krumpe's Way or Krumpe's Run, because everyone has to 'make a Krumpe's run' would be nice to."
Krumpe's owners, brothers Rudolph and Fred Krumpe, petitioned the city for the name change to commemorate the shop's long history nestled between the 900 block of Maryland Ave. and Spruce Street.
