Coffee Shop at Woodman's a Possibility

Coffee shop would be second major addition to the Oak Creek Woodman's in the past year.

Earlier this week, I heard some chatter about a coffee shop going in at the Oak Creek , 8131 S. Howell Ave.

So I reached out to Woodman's on Twitter -- the only way a true investigative journalist handles such rumors -- and they responded that "it's still a possibility, no finalized plans yet though."

So there you go.

If it came to fruition, it would be the second big addition to Woodman's in the last year, the first being the . (I heard the coffee shop would be near the bank on the east side of the store)

And it wouldn't be the first coffee shop to be part of a Woodman's, as Starbucks is a part of the company's Kenosha location.

It would be interesting if the shop did wind up being Starbucks though, seeing as there is already two Starbucks just down the street - the standalone store at . and the one in , 8989 S. Howell Ave. Not to mention a Starbucks at and on the Franklin side of 27th Street.

But we'll see. What say you on a coffee shop at Woodman's -- for or against?

I will add they serve Alterra at the new Dish restaurant at the corner of Ryan and 27th, if people have checked that place out. And it's a restaurant/O&H Bakery, so you can go in and get a cup to go, or go through the drive-thru. Thus ends this free advertisement for the Dish.

Really should put the coffee shop at the Delphi site....ever been to an Alterra coffee shop that isn't busy busy busy.....its a great place to meet ...hang...and sip....the places are gold mines.......a stand alone Alterra at the corner of Drexel and Howell would be the plan.........drink up Oak Creek
