Starbucks Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting
Tomorrow, Friday, Sept. 21 at noon, join the Montrose-Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce as we host a ribbon cutting and grand opening for the Starbucks Montrose location at 2282 Honolulu Ave. at the corner of Ocean View Boulevard. Stop by and see the new store, try some samples and welcome the new crew. Crescenta Valley High School graduate and longtime Starbucks employee Joe Agnone will manage the location and feels privileged to do it.
“I am so excited about this. I get to live and work in a great place – it just doesn’t get much better,” Joe told me.
