The Big Day has almost arrived.

If you travel on Adams, you've must have seen a new 3-store strip mall being built next to the new Walmart. No big deal. Tons of strip malls all over Temple.

But this one suddenly became important when it was announced that Starbucks was going to be the first business to open in it. And now the sign out front has a Monday open date.

So all you caffeine addicts on the west side of Temple, you will no longer have to cross I-35 to get your fix. Try not to trample anyone Monday morning. But if you are planning on stopping in, you might want to give yourself a little extra time, since, I'm sure, there will be a few others there as well.
