The Dave Ward Starbucks is officially open.

The store opened Thursday after almost a full year of it being announced May 2, 2016.

The coffee shop was built on a 1.61-acre tract of land next to First Security Bank across from the UCA Bill Stephen’s Track/Soccer Complex at the corner of Dave Ward Drive and South Donaghey Avenue.

This Starbucks is the third standalone and fifth Starbucks in Conway.
