Starbucks May be Opening in North Reading

The coffee shop plans to open in the old Sunrise Bagels location.

Starbucks will go before the Community Planning Commission Tuesday night for approval for their site plan review. The coffee company is planning to open a location where Sunrise Bagels is located.

Sunrise Bagels is planning to close their shop and relocate to Wilmington. If Starbucks is able to get the required approvals from boards and committees in town, they will take over that location. 

According to Community Planning Administrative Assistant Debbie Savarese, Starbucks plans to make changes to the exterior of the building. They may want to add in a drive-through and additional outdoor seating, she said.

Joe, I did vote for the new schools.

i will tell you how I voted after you prove to me that you did vote for the new school. I am suprised that a sitting School committee member thinks that attending one of the biggest events in a students life and education is just, pomp and circumstance.

Don't be surprised. As a a very committed community member there are things I cannot make due to other civic responsibilities that chair excuses my absence. As for the vote I will be happy to publish both of my yes votes in the paper if legally allowed. You should do the same.

Joe, I am not at all new to the Patch which is why I can factually say that you are one person who frequently speaks about using your name as if it as a badge of honor while simultaneously writing some of the most non productive commentary on this blog. Please note that I said that it is important that people be responsible for what the write which in other words means whether you use your real name or a pseudonym, it is important to write things that are productive to the conversation and not ignorant, xenophobic or otherwise not helpful to the matters being discussed.

Further, Joe, you called people cowards on this very thread for not using their real names. Is that not a cheap shot? It also shows a very limited view of things by you. That is if people do not do what you do then they must be cowards because in your view only a coward would not use his/her real name on an internet blog. You are wrong on this point. If your assertion is that people are more likely to speak responsibly when using their real name, state that (it is not necessarily true but, okay) but do not call people names because they choose to remain anonymous for whatever reason. I am glad that you use your real name by the way because I know a lot about you and your views and manner of dealing with others and now I can make an informed choice at the polls.
