Drive-through Starbucks to open on Ramsey Road

| May 3, 2020 1:20 AM

With at least 23,768 outlets and its headquarters in the Northwest, Starbucks is building a new outlet in Coeur d’Alene.

Located in the northwest corner of the Crossroads complex (off Ramsey Road, kitty-corner from the Kroc Center), this Starbucks will include indoor seating and a drive-through. With its first location in Seattle’s Pike Place Market, Starbucks offers hot and cold coffees, teas, yogurt, custards, breakfasts, lunches, snacks, sweets and bakery goods.

Hughes Investments owns the new Cd’A place and has a 4,400-square-foot pad available next door. For Hughes check For Starbucks check

New Chase Bank planned at 143 W. Neider

Soon under construction with a late 2020 opening planned, Chase Bank will be at 143 W. Neider Ave. (in front of Tractor Supply). It will replace its overgrown outlet in the Fred Meyer complex where a Chase ATM will remain.

Chase Bank offers checking and savings accounts, business banking, mortgages, investment products and advisers. The new place will have a community wall (with local highlights), a room for educational events, three ATMs and a 24-hour drive-up.

With its headquarters in Manhattan of New York City, the bank began in 1799 with founder Aaron Burr and now has 4,866 outlets. The financial services-holding company is JP Morgan Chase.

The digital tools and tailored in-branch experiences include financial advice from short-term savings to retirement. The website and the mobile app are used for bank account access and monitoring.
