I assume you mean on Main St in Worcester, MA. It is now a Duncun Donuts, and now 3 or 4 mergers later, Shawmut is part of Bank of America. I have seen apricot donuts at other places, but they are not as good. Cottage, a small Westboro MA based chain, according to a bakery supply rep that I met, went out of business because the did all the "right" things. The best ingredients, good locations, fair pay for the workers, and a company attitude of "If it is not really fresh, throw it away", could not compete with highly advertised lower quality product from the competition.
