New Starbucks location coming to east Ocala

A new Starbucks location is coming to Maricamp Road in Ocala.

The popular cafe, which already boasts six other locations across the city, is currently under construction at 3537 SE Maricamp Road. The location sits on an outparcel that is part of the defunct Cedar Shores Plaza, which has been void of any activity since Winn Dixie vacated the space in 2015.

Earlier this year, Starbucks made headlines when it was one of the first companies that temporarily shuttered stores nationwide in response to the ongoing pandemic, including multiple locations in Ocala.

The new store hours have not yet been released and an opening date has not yet been announced.
