Starbucks will be opening a new store next spring in the Showcase Cinema parking lot, a Starbucks spokesperson said Tuesday. Work has begun and the new store will have a drive through. Starbucks has one store in East Greenwich, on Main Street. The closest Starbucks drive throughs are on Route 2 in Warwick and off Route 102 in North Kingstown.



Dr. Eleanor Stump

Dr. Eleanor Stump recently relocated her chiropractic and acupuncture practice to South County Trail in East Greenwich after 43 years in Delaware. A graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic, she specializes in back and neck pain, arthritis, and treatment-resistant pain syndromes. As a certified yoga instructor for more than 40 years, Dr. Stump integrates that knowledge into her treatment. 

Stump was the first woman appointed to the Delaware Board of Examiners and was named Delaware Chiropractor of the Year in 1985. She is looking forward to bringing her experience to serve her new Rhode Island community.

This is fantastic news about Stump Chiropractic and her being a graduate of the Palmer College!
Hard to find practitioners in her specialty in the RI area.
