Coffee chain opens location in suburban gas station
A gas station in the area is welcoming a major coffee chain.
Starbucks has opened a new location within the Meijer C-Store at 2988 Walker Ave. NW in Walker, across from the Meijer headquarters, said Dave Denton, VP of real estate brokerage for Plainfield Township-based DAR Development, which represents Starbucks in its site selection for West Michigan.
The new coffee shop occupies roughly 2,000 square feet of the 5,500-square-foot convenience store and features outside and inside entrances, as well as drive-thru service.
“This is the first of what could be several stores of this type,” Denton said.
The shop features the same menu as other Starbucks locations.
