You “donut” want to miss sweet savings Friday.

June 7 is National Doughnut Day – or National Donut Day in some circles – and shops across the country are marking the day with fried freebies and delectable deals.

Celebrated annually on the first Friday in June, the day of the pastry was established in 1938 to honor the Salvation Army Donut Lassies, women who served the treats to soldiers during World War I.

Expect doughnut shops and bakeries to be crowded Friday, which is one of the busiest days of the year for bakeries.

Brad Plothow, vice president of brand and communications for Womply, a small business software provider, said consumers spend 57% more money on doughnuts for the made-up day than a typical day.

“Shops hoping to make more dough will no doubt be running special promotions, so expect big deals and long lines if you venture out for a treat at your favorite doughnut shop,” Plothow said.
