Starbucks Remodel Almost Done; New Store Opens... THURSDAY

Coffee Cafe in the parking lot, caution tape, hard hats, pop-up tents, no drive-thru, and a line of confused customers: This has been the scene at the Dixon Starbucks since last Tuesday, but it will soon end.

UPDATE: The opening was bumped back to Thursday, August 29. The story below was done when scheduled reopening was Tuesday. 

STORY: Remodeling began almost a month ago in the store next to in Dixon. Last Tuesday, August 14, the construction migrated over to teh coffee shop itself.

Rather than closing the busy store, a temporary mobile cafe was built right in the parking lot, which according to employees is only the second store in the company's history to do this. The drive-thru was closed, however, in order to rebuild the structural side of the building and reroute the driveway.

When the store reopens Tuesday, expect to see new furniture, upgraded family-style bathrooms and more room for the employees to work -- making it more efficient for them to get you your morning coffee. You'll also see a redesigned drive thru for cars to ease around the corner and a fenced in front patio area with new furtinure.

Are you excited about Starbucks 2.0? What's your favorite coffee drink?

They'll need the extra room if the movie studio comes to town.

If I'm going to Starbucks, then I'll visit the one inside of Safeway. The staff is very nice and quick from taking your order to having it made and its done right!
