Target in Cottage Grove adding Starbuck's

Area residents looking for a caffeine kick soon will have another option.

Food Avenue inside the Cottage Grove Target on East Point Douglas Road was torn down last month in preparation for the construction of a new Starbucks.

“We are happy to confirm we will be opening a Starbucks inside the Cottage Grove Target this fall,” a spokesperson for the coffee chain said earlier this week. “We are always looking for ways to better meet the needs of our customers.”

Construction is under way and Target customers will notice the former Food Avenue near the entrance is blocked off as crews install equipment and signage.

The company declined to provide more details about the new location.

This will be the second Starbucks in Cottage Grove. The other location, with a drive-thru, is located at 7190 East Point Douglas Road in the Gateway North district.

The Starbucks chained first opened its doors in Seattle in 1971 and now has more than 18,000 stores in 62 countries.
