Starbucks, Pizza Place Moving into Consumer Square in New Hartford
The old Blockbuster building will also have a new tenant in Consumer Square. 5 Guys is moving down the road from their Commercial Drive location, according to the Utica OD. Wingstop, a chicken wing restaurant will then fill the location.
There's no word on when any of the new restaurants will open.
I'm all for new business moving into town but maybe someone should consider new traffic patterns in 'Congestion' Square. Traffic was bad enough with one way in and out, it's sounds like it's only going to get worse. Especially with a Starbucks. I'd hate to be around the area in the morning when everyone is rushing to get their caffeine fix.
