After several decades of serving donuts, the building at 5821 Crawfordsville Road has been transformed into a Verizon Wireless Center.

Store Manager Brandis Gossett said the store opened April 4 with grand plans to promote its new location during the month of May. The grand opening will include a live band and other "extravagant" activities. Brandis expects the store's location to do well, especially with all of the additional traffic using Crawfordsville Road because of the I-465 project.

Gossett said he does not know anything about Speedway's redevelopment plans; the decision to locate in town was made at the corporate level.
