Good news for Riverheaders looking for their coffee fix: the Starbucks on Route 58 is now open.

And next-door, a new structure is being built to house a Vitamin Shoppe, officials with the Saber plaza said.

The coffee shop held a soft opening Monday, and will host a grand opening celebration in four weeks, said supervisor Amanda Delong. The store, which is located in the shopping center just east of Riverhead Raceway that holds Christmas Tree Shops, Dick’s Sporting Goods and Aldi’s, includes a drive-through window and will be open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. each day, she said.

That shopping center also includes a Dick’s Sporting GoodsFive BelowAldiChristmas Tree Shop, and a Buffalo Wild Wings. 

“We’re just trying to get the word out, but so far [business] has been good,” Ms. Delong said.

The building next door — which is still under construction — will be a Vitamin Shoppe that is expected to open near the end of June, a Saber employee said.

Work up your appetite, wings fans: the general manager of the new Buffalo Wild Wings on Route 58 in Riverhead said the casual restaurant is slated to open Dec. 9.

“We’re very excited for the opening,” said Andrew Schuett, the general manager of the 6,000-square-foot Riverhead location, which is housed in the easternmost side of the new shopping complex located just east of Riverhead Raceway. “We’re going to bring a little bit of Buffalo Wild Wings to the East End.”

As part of its grand opening, Mr. Schuett said, the restaurant’s first 100 patrons will receive a voucher book entitling them to six free chicken wings a week for a year.

The plaza where Buffalo Wild Wings is located is also home to a recently-opened Dick’s Sporting Goods, Five Below and Christmas Tree Shops. Starbucks, Aldi and The Vitamin Shoppe — all located in the same shopping center — are scheduled to open in the next few months.
