No one with the company is sharing details, but April Reed of Slawson Cos. confirms it’s happening.
Starbucks, which has been at NewMarket since 2003, currently has 1,500 square feet. It’s expanding into the 1,475-square-foot space Cartridge World left last summer.
Slawson has done exterior work to get the new space ready for Starbucks.
“One of their concerns was that each of those storefronts had its own distinct look,” Reed says. “They wanted to make it look like it was one cohesive space.”
The coffee chain is now in the design and permitting phase.
“They’re shooting to open in May,” Reed says.
