Commuters in Tuscaloosa can begin the week with some great news: a drive-thru Starbucks is coming to town.  Al.com reports the new Starbucks will be located on the campus of the University of Alabama in a new $5.2 million retail facility; the new retail facility will house a Starbucks with a drive-thru feature in addition to a SupeStore (which will be relocated from Tutwiler Hall) in the former Corner Store location.

Plans for the facility were approved at the University of Alabama's Board of Trustees meeting on June 13, 2014. We'll have more details about Tuscaloosa's newest Starbucks as they are released.
