Hollister Gets New Starbucks 09-23-30 14:40 DC

The City of Hollister is getting another Starbucks. The move comes after the coffee house chain announced the closure of some 400 stores earlier this summer.

The store in Hollister, located along San Felipe Road, will feature outdoor seating and will be drive-thru friendly. In larger markets, Starbucks will only be accepting mobile orders. 

Some in Hollister are concerned whether a Starbucks was the best use of the commercial space. Still, neighboring businesses are welcoming the Starbucks and hoping that it brings them more traffic.
