Starbucks is reportedly working up plans for a new store in the Bel Air Plaza.

The Bel Air planning commission approved a proposal in the last week for Starbucks to open up shop at the now vacant Baltimore County Savings Bank in the shopping center, The Aegis reported.

The coffee shop already has an established presence in Bel Air, at the following locations:
The Baltimore County Savings Bank building has a drive-through, The Aegis noted.

The closest Starbucks locations with drive-throughs are in Constant Friendship and Perry Hall, according to Starbucks.

Amazing previous comments? Each to their own! Nevertheless, Starbucks in Bel Air ... Outstanding! I guess the million + customers each year are just Star-struck ...

I cannot stand weak coffee. Please Lord make this happen- a drive thru in Forest Hill would be awesome too.

They already have 2 in the same proximity. Couldn't they put one in the Forest Hill/hickory area instead?

I think they should bring back the bank. The new location on Main street is a pain to get in and out. They placed the sign for First National on the ground in front of the bank and it blocks your view of oncoming traffic when you drive out of the ATM lanes.
