UPDATE – New Starbucks On North Broadway
(UPDATE September 1, 2020) Thanks to Jeff Kiger for sharing this on the Y-105FM Facebook page.
This city document from Aug. 6 certainly makes it look like Starbucks is going there. At least it will have an address there.
A gas station was torn down and there was nothing for a while. Then a building started taking shape. As construction continues, rumors are flying...surely this new business can't be another Starbucks. Not so close to a Caribou? The building shape looks a lot like the new one down on Rochester's South Broadway near the new Taco Bell.
Are you ready for this? Back in October 2019 we got the word it was going to be a Starbucks and nothings happened to change that plan. Yes, even tho there are a metric butt ton of places to get coffee within a mile of it.
The story from October...
First, I got in touch with Starbucks, and their spokesperson said,
"Starbucks is always looking for great locations to better meet the needs of our customers and we are continually evaluating our store portfolio. At this time, we remain focused on serving customers in Rochester at our existing stores and have no store-opening plans to announce."
But a quick call to the Gov't Center confirms permits have been taken out to do just what Starbucks says isn't happening at the old Sinclaire gas station, the one across the street from Silver Lake Foods.
