PERINTON, N.Y. (WROC) — A former Perinton post office will soon be the new home of a Chipotle restaurant and a Starbucks.
The abandoned post office, located in the Perinton Square Plaza, should be completely transformed and the stores will be ready to open in at least six months. Construction began in October, and has been moving along quickly. Officials say this is because they are tucked into a corner and have no traffic to deal with.
Each restaurant will have a separate drive-thru and separate dining rooms.
Chipotle hopes to open in May, Starbucks in August. The Starbucks in the Citizens Bank next door will close.
The post office originally closed to move to the old mail distribution center on Ayrault Road. It has been renovated into a larger post office and is named after Louise Slaughter. Officials say they have not put the sign up yet.
