New Starbucks to open inside Erie Target store

Feel free to add a Caramel Macchiato or a Venti-size black coffee to your shopping list the next time you visit the Peach Street Target store.

Starbucks is opening a new location March 4 inside Target.

The new Starbucks, which includes a small dining area for customers, has moved into space on the north side of the main entrance that had been occupied by guest services.

That department has moved to the other side of the entry into space that had filled by four cash registers.

Jim Cosgrove, store director, said he’s looking forward to joining a growing list of Target stores that operate Starbucks franchises.

“It’s absolutely awesome,” he said. “We are talking to all our guests and they are really excited.”
Cosgrove said customers will be able to bring their drinks and baked treats into the store. Cosgrove said he’s hoping to find cup holders that can be attached to the store’s new shopping carts.

The store will mark another milestone in March with the March 24 opening of the store’s new meat and produce departments.
