The new coffee shop was expected to open last Friday (April 29), but had to be pushed back due to roadworks outside the store on the A6 Preston Road.

But Starbucks has confirmed it will now go ahead with the grand opening tomorrow morning, creating 16 new jobs.

The drive-thru - situated just half a mile from the town centre – will open seven days a week, from 6.30am to 9pm Monday to Friday, 7am to 9pm on Saturdays and 7.30am to 9pm on Sundays.
