Looks like we’re putting New York in it’s place…yet again 🙂
The Big Apple WAS on course to open the world’s largest Starbucks next year. Actually, for a time, it WILL be! A very short time.
Mayor Emanuel announced this morning that the Crate & Barrel flagship location on the Mag Mile will close next year to make way for a Starbucks Reserve Roastery. It will be one of only a small handful in existence.
This won’t be your everyday, run-of-the-mill Starbucks. This one will be 4 stories tall with 43,000 square feet of space! That’s over TWICE the size of the New York location. <mic drop>
Oh wait, I have a joke to make before wrapping up this story. <mic pick up>
With a store that big, just imagine how many tens of thousands of names they’ll get wrong every day! <mic drop…again>
