The Restaurant Guy lives near Costco in Goleta but sometime ends up at neighboring supermarket Albertsons at 7127 Hollister Avenue when I don’t need to buy groceries by the pallet. While stopping in for a box of Grapenut Flakes I noticed that construction has started near the inside front of the building which will be the future home of Starbucks.

    Hi John,

    Any word on an opening date? I am actually not looking forward to this. This store is already a ZOO, and Starbucks is only going to make it worse.

    They’re usually just a kiosk that gets brought in, so I’d expect maybe a week or 2 at most…plumbing was already in place from the boba area that was there.

    The entire store is being remodeled and is moving very quickly.
