Starbucks is set to open its newest York County location in West Manchester Township the first week of October, according to a company spokeswoman.

The new free-standing Starbucks, at 1450 Kenneth Road between Route 30 and Loucks Road, replaces Lots-a-Bubbles Car Wash, which closed this year.

Spokeswoman Maggie Jantzen said the 2,000-square-foot coffee shop will employ 21 people, including a mix of new hires and current employees transferring.
