If you're a fancy donut fan who happens to live in the South Loop, you just hit the jackpot - Stan's Donuts & Coffee opens its fourth location there on Jan. 16.

Time Out Chicago tipped us off to this opening. The chain has been rapidly expanding in the city since it first opened the Wicker Park location in early 2014. The new location will be at 28 E. Roosevelt Rd., across from Jewel Osco.

Even better, you don't have to live in the South Loop to celebrate. All four Stan's locations will be hosting giveaways, and the first 100 people in line will all get special prizes. If you're at the new location, you might win free donuts for life if you are the luckiest in line. They've pulled this promotion before —so maybe all we need to do is make friends with the winners.
