From a tipster, we hear that Starbucks is getting ready to open: "I just was at the new Starbucks at 8000 Sunset (the old Buzz Coffee). They were giving out free samples. This Starbucks officially opens tomorrow, December 12th at 6:00 AM." Between this and the CB2 signs, it sounds that things are finally moving at the shopping center. [Racked Inbox]
