Starbucks giveth and Starbucks taketh away.
A new Starbucks store with drive thru opened early Wednesday morning near the northeast corner of Silverdale Way and Bucklin Hill Road. The previous Bucklin Hill location, next to Haggen, has closed.
“Starbucks is always looking for great locations to better meet the needs of our customers,” a spokeswoman for the coffee giant said in an email.
Construction began this spring on the new 2,400-square-foot shop, which shares the corner with IHOP and Little Caesars Pizza.
With one store closing and another opening, Silverdale’s Starbucks count remains at three. A second store is located farther north on Silverdale Way. The third is inside Safeway.
Silverdale isn’t the only Kitsap town getting a new Starbucks. A store with drive thru is under construction in Kingston, at the corner of Highway 104 and Miller Bay Road, next to Rite Aid.
