New Starbucks Slated to Open Mid-August
The coffee shop will fill a vacant space on Kent Road.
In February, Starbucks expressed an interest in opening a store in a former bank building on Kent Road.
This winter, 1st Choice Facilities Services received a conditional zoning certificate for the property at 4249 Kent Rd. and just two weeks ago the city issued a building permit.
Chief Building Inspector Tony Catalano said he spoke with a 1st Choice representative Monday morning who said the new Starbucks should be finished in eight weeks and open sometime in mid-August.
Some were excited about an empty store front being filled, others were disappointed a chain was coming in. Some even said the location was confusing because a Starbucks is inside of the nearby Target.
