Renovation at East Blvd. Starbucks to limit hours until April 12

The popular Starbucks on East Boulevard in Dilworth is undergoing about $500,000 in renovations that will require limited hours and closings on some days for the next 10 days starting Thursday.

Renovations include knocking down a wall within the cafe, opening up the walk-in space, centering the restaurant’s stairs that are currently set off to one side, adding a long table in the middle of the room and extending the bar, a Starbucks employee told the Observer.

For customers who want to avoid the construction altogether, the next nearest Starbucks is at 1630 Woodlawn Ave., near Park Road Shopping Center.

A sign posted in the Dilworth Starbucks gives these revised hours during construction:

▪ Thursday, April 2 – 5:30 a.m.-6 p.m.

▪ Friday, April 3 – 5:30 a.m.-6 p.m.

▪ Saturday, April 4 – 5:30 a.m.-11 p.m.

▪ Sunday, April 5 – 6 a.m.-10 p.m.

▪ Monday, April 6 – closed.
