MILWAUKEE — Cookie lovers near and far, gather around. There are new Insomnia Cookies in town, and it's right downtown.

Located at 1133 N. Old World 3rd St., the new Insomnia Cookies location is open for business as of Friday. It's the third location in Milwaukee and only the fifth in Wisconsin.

The new site is currently open for curbside pickup daily until midnight, with delivery beginning at noon Monday through Friday and at 1 p.m. on weekends.

Once state restrictions are lifted, the location will begin regular hours. These hours are 9 a.m. until 3 a.m. on weekdays, and 11 a.m. until 3 a.m. on weekends.

"We are excited for Insomnia Cookies to open at Deer District and to bring some joy to the surrounding community during this difficult time," said Michael Belot, Senior Vice President of Bucks Ventures and Development. "We look forward to Insomnia Cookies becoming a staple of Deer District, which has quickly become a prime destination for elevated sports bar fare, craft beer, and diverse activities and programming."

The Bucks and Fiserv Forum took advantage of this new store. They ordered cookies to be delivered to frontline workers at Milwaukee Fire Station No. 2, Milwaukee Police Department's District One Station, the staff at Froedtert McKinley Health Center, and employees and volunteers at Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin.

Additionally, Insomnia Cookies at Deer District will offer free delivery for their first week. Order online or through the app and use the code MIL4FREE. Insomnia Cookies will also donate $1 to the Milwaukee COVID Relief Fund for each 12-pack of traditional cookies sold from the new store.

"We are thrilled to continue serving the city of Milwaukee with this third location in Deer District," said Insomnia Cookies Chief Marketing Officer Tom Carusona. "Old World Third Street is the perfect spot to satisfy any daytime or late-night cookie craving."
