The new Starbucks that we've heard rumor about is expected be open as early as this Friday, June 8th. In a post shared by the Downtown Alliance and originally posted by ARC Construction, the new Starbucks, located in the Doubletree by Hilton, is expected to be open for business on Friday. Some people are concerned that a large, corporate chain will pull business away from local coffee shops downtown but others argue that the opposite is true, claiming that competition is healthy for business. If you love Starbucks and live downtown, it's good news for you!
