GILLETTE, Wyo. — The Starbucks on 4-J Road in Gillette has opened.
Campbell County resident Kaleb McClintock said he was the new location’s first customer. He stopped by the store at 5:57 a.m. Sept. 15. He said the store is absolutely gorgeous.
John Wright, a superintendent with Independence Construction, said Aug. 24 that Starbucks employees were scheduled to begin training the week of Aug. 28 at the new store, which is on the west side of 4-J Road, south of Lakeway Road and north of Gillette College’s Technical Education Center, 3251 S. 4-J Road.
Another Starbucks location is scheduled to open around February 2024, project manager Rob Brower, of S & S Builders, said while working at the site Aug. 24. The site is on the west side of the 2200 block of South Douglas Highway, between Burger King and KFC. S & S Builders plans to complete construction in October. Starbucks would then bring in an interior finishing crew.
The Starbucks that’s inside of the Albertsons in Gillette will not be moving or closing, Director of Public Affairs Kris Staaf said.
While County 17 attempted to reach Starbucks’ media contacts multiple times on multiple dates since Aug. 16 for more information, official media sources have not contacted County 17. County 17 also unsuccessfully attempted to reach Starbucks managers and developer Tyson Waggener.
