Starbucks has signed a 10-year lease to open a 3,857-square-foot store at Newton Plaza in Covington, Georgia.
“Currently, there are no Starbucks stores in Covington,” said Halpern Leasing Director John Brozovic. “We’re excited about bringing the coffeehouse to the area and adding another popular retailer to Newton Plaza’s stellar tenant line-up.”
Anticipating a summer 2021 opening, Starbucks is retrofitting a former free-standing Chick-fil-A restaurant located on one of the shopping center’s outparcels.
Built by Halpern in 1974, Newton Plaza is anchored by Kroger and home to more than 40 restaurant, retail and service tenants, including national brands Planet Fitness, Bealls, Goodwill, and Big Lots, among others. The property is located on US-278, less than a mile from the I-20 interchange and Piedmont Newton Hospital.
