Starbucks has announced that the chain will be temporarily closing its “high-social gathering” locations for at least two weeks.
Starbucks Canada President Lori Digulla made the announcement online yesterday.
In short, Starbucks is moving all stores to a “to go” model which means they will be removing all seating, including all café and patio seating.
So if you have not tried Mobile Order & Pay yet, here is your chance in search of your favourite beverage.
Starbucks will also be closing stores in high-social gathering locations like stores located in malls that don’t have exterior/street access, and in colleges and universities.
They have also begun leaning into additional measures on a store-by-store basis, including reducing operating hours or temporarily closing select stores.
