Coffee lovers will soon have another place to grab a cup of joe in New Providence.

Seattle-based java giant Starbucks plans to open in the Village Shopping Center later this week, according to a Starbucks spokesperson. 

The newly-renovated space, which faces Springfield Avenue, can seat approximately 30 customers. 

While Starbucks has already hired employees for this location, a company spokesperson said the coffeehouse chain is always accepting applications online at Starbucks.com.

To celebrate the opening, a 'Friends & Family' event will be held from 5 to 8 p.m.  Friday, Jan. 24 and will include a ribbon cutting ceremony attended by Mayor J. Brooke Hern.

I won't be going to the opening. J.Broke Hern says he worked to get a Starbucks to NP for 10 years, to me, that appears to be all he's been able to accomplish for the town ? besides, do the people know that his maniacal meddling almost resulted in us getting a 7-11 next to Barth's Market instead of a Starbucks ? no, he conveniently doesn't mention that at all, and maybe that is why the Alternative Press called him out for not attending a single planning board hearing of the 7-11 application.
