Starbucks arrives on the national highway |
LAVALE – Starbucks will open a store on National Highway in LaVale in 2021.
Ed Scott, partner of Kline Scott Visco Commercial Real Estate, the developer of the former Slumberland Motel property on National Road, said he expects the chain of cafes to open next fall next to a recently built Taco Bell.
“We have a project in the old Slumberland Motel where the Taco Bell is located,” Scott said. “… we signed a lease with Starbucks as another room there.”
