New signage went up this week at the Wetherby Road site.

Progress at the new Starbucks site in Harrogate grinds on, but its planned opening date is still not known.

The Stray Ferret first reported that the former Leon site on Wetherby Road would become a Starbucks in August, when North Yorkshire Council granted planning consent to change the branding on the unit.

Starbucks advertised for new staff at the drive-through coffee shop in December, and then this week, new signage finally went up, giving coffee aficionados hope that the new outlet might brew its first espresso sometime soon.

But a Starbucks spokesperson told the Stray Ferret:

“We are always looking for new locations and opportunities to bring the Starbucks experience to customers in the UK, but at this time we have no updates to share about plans in Harrogate.”

Signs have gone up on Wetherby Road.

The Stray Ferret will continue to monitor developments at the site.

Starbucks currently has only one presence in the district, on Cambridge Street in Harrogate town centre.
