Starbucks To Barbucks
After purchasing your morning coffee at your local Starbucks store, you could now also return there in the evening for a pint or a glass of your favourite wine.
A Starbucks store in Seattle is testing their new business idea of selling alcohol in the evenings, as well as their famous coffee. A move planned to see their customers through from the morning, right till the end of the day.
The idea came about after the realisation that a majority of their sales are during the morning as people come in before their day begins. The executives over at Starbucks have decided they'd also like to cash in during the evenings.
If the idea takes off in Seattle stores, the alcohol will be available after four in the afternoon, and could be hitting stores worldwide.
