Starbucks and Kay Jewelers will be the newest additions to a shopping center on Klumac Road.

The two new retailers will be located in a three-tenant building near the edge of a shopping complex that’s adjacent to Interstate 85 and contains Kohl’s, Shoe Carnival, Ulta Beauty, Belk and Michael’s.

The three-tenant building is currently under construction. It’s located on the last open outparcel lot in the shopping complex known as Wallace Commons.

The projected opening date is broadly this summer. Once open, the Starbucks will be the second such store in Salisbury. The first is located off of East Innes Street.

Signs at the edge of the construction site indicate Starbucks and Kay Jewelers will be tenants. Names of tenants were also confirmed by Salisbury Development Services Manager Preston Mitchell and Wallace Realty Company President Victor Wallace.

“It’s going to grow the tax base, give people the opportunity to shop and the ability to buy a coffee and a wedding ring,” Mitchell said about the building.

Mitchell said the building will measure 6,600 square feet. Plans for the site show a number of trees and shrubs on the exterior and interior of the site. Plans also show 47 parking spaces.

Neither Mitchell nor Wallace said they were aware of a named, third tenant for the building. The middle tenant in the building will be located between Starbucks and Kay Jewelers.
