ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Starbucks plans to open a new store in Northwest Albany, a spokesperson confirmed Thursday.

The new location will be at the corner of North Westover Boulevard and Dawson Road. It will open this fall.

The store will feature a café and drive thru and will employ about 25-30 employees.

The spokesperson also said the store will also offer the company's rare and exquisite coffees known as Starbucks Reserve.

Customers will also be able to order their coffee on the Clover Brewing System, which is a special process brewed fresh by the cup.

The store will be Albany's first Starbucks to include a drive thru, but will be the city's third overall.

Starbucks kiosk stores are located inside Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital and at Phoebe Meredyth Place in Albany.

Over the past 12 months, a Dunkin' Donuts opened a location with a drive thru near downtown Albany.

There was no immediate word on an exact opening date for the new Starbucks store.
