Starbucks plans to open a store this spring along Beacon Street in Cleveland Circle.
A spokesman for Starbucks said today that the Seattle-based coffee chain is scheduled to open at 1950 Beacon St., in late March or early April, inside a 1,500-square-foot space that previously housed a Verizon Wireless retail store and is across the street from a Dunkiní Donuts store.
The spokesman said store officials expect to employ between 15 and 20 people.
The company, which needs to obtain a common victuallerís license and signage approval from the city before it can open, will go before the Brighton Allston Improvement Association on Thursday at 7 p.m.
That neighborhood group meets the first Thursday of each month at the Elks Lodge on Washington Street.
