Reader question: When is Starbucks closing downtown?

Answer: Thursday.

It’s leaving 101 E. College Ave. in downtown Appleton. The staff will relocate to the new Starbucks branch opening Friday at 3314 W. College Ave. in Grand Chute, which shares a building with Orange Leaf, a frozen yogurt shop. It’s next door to Panera Bread.

The new Starbucks location has a “friends and family” preview Thursday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. that’s open to the public.

Meanwhile, the downtown corner spot where it has been for the last 10 years is for lease.

In related news: its neighbor, Orange Leaf, has been open for a month, but will have its official ribbon cutting Wednesday.

Jordy Nelson of the Green Bay Packers, an investor in the branch, will be there to greet customers starting at 6 p.m. The shop will be giving away Packers memorabilia signed by Nelson and another Packers investor, Mason Crosby, that day to celebrate its opening.
