Let’s make that a larger coffee shop

Pat Dillon looks over property he co-owns Monday as construction crews prepare to move in a larger Durango Joes drive-through coffee shop on north Main Avenue. The new drive-through will house more storage space and bathrooms. Also, new signs will be put in place to comply with new city regulations, and the new building will be dark-sky compliant. Separate from the coffee shop will be a Wells Fargo Bank drive-through full-service ATM. A U.S. Postal Service drop-off box will also be returned along Main Avenue. Enlarge photo
