Starbucks Now Open on Main Campus. Grand Opening Set for Nov. 8

Students, staff, faculty, and community members can stop by the new location in the Marketplace @ CNM building for drinks and snacks
November 02, 2021

Students who need a pick-me-up before their morning class and CNM staff members who need a quick snack for their afternoon meeting can now stop by the brand new Starbucks located on Main Campus in the Marketplace @CNM building off University Blvd., just south of Coal Ave. The location had a soft opening last week and will hold its grand opening on Nov. 8 with free cupcakes, hot dogs, and coffee samples. 

Right now, the Starbucks has six employees, including several CNM student employees. The plan is to eventually have a staff of 10-14.

Inside the Marketplace building you’ll also find a convenient Grab n’ Go store with drinks and snacks, as well as Main Campus’ new two-story CNM Bookstore. The Starbucks is currently open Monday-Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Both the Grab n’ Go store and the Bookstore are open Monday-Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Ann Heaton, who oversees the CNM Bookstore as well as the new Starbucks, says she’s excited to offer new conveniences.

“This Starbucks is going to be a great place for students to take a coffee break, study for their next test, and meet new friends,” she says. “It will also serve the community and help expose them to everything that CNM has to offer.”

Down below we’ve put together a gallery of photos from the new Starbucks location. We encourage everyone to join us on November 8!
