Ardmore residents who love coffee, lattes, teas, and treats woke up extra early on Friday.
A brand new Starbucks Coffee store opened in Ardmore Friday morning at Interstate 35 and 12th Street. City officials say the new coffee shop is a reflection of growth and will boost local business by encouraging people to stop by, eat, and shop.
Dwayne and Nancy Tupper were among the new store's first customers.
"We'd drove to Gainesville to get Starbucks. He's a truck driver and every time he'd come home, that's our treat."
A second site is planned for the Mountain View Mall. It should be built within the next 12 months.
