How is Dunkin Donuts coming along?

Miscellaneous discussions. Things that don't have anything to do with Western, Leatherneck Athletics, college sports in general, etc.

Lots of work still going on at the new Starbucks site.

Starbucks will be on the back side of the old Ponderosa building. A drive-through and a new entrance has been added to that side of the building.

Not the best time for it, but apparently Starbucks locations are staying open but have removed their seating so people don't stick around.
Either way, it's opening in a couple of days...

I don't have any knowledge other than what's been posted online in a couple of articles. Construction has begun. Maybe like 3 storefronts. Heard a few other rumors (one said that Arbys might be moving there), but they're just rumors at this point. That's pretty much all I know.
