If you’ve been missing your daily dose of coffee, or your favourite frappuccino, there’s good news ahead. Starting this week, Starbucks Canada is reopening locations across the country, and they intend to resume as many operations as possible by the end of May. Sounds like coffee is making a comeback!\nFortunately for coffee-lovers, you won’t have to live without your local Starbucks for too much longer.\nStarting this week, the company has plans to resume operations in several of their Canadian locations, and they’ve got plans to reopen as many as possible by the end May.\nAfter initially offering drive thru, delivery and pick-up only services, they’ll begin reintroducing new measures on a community-by-community basis.\nAccording to their news release, this could include curbside pick-up or even walk-in orders again. Eek! We can almost taste the Vanilla Lattes.\nIn a statement shared with Narcity, the coffee giant explained, “The stores which remained open during COVID-19 have helped the company test and refine new ways of working and new operating models, designed specifically for the current social-distancing environment.”\nNewly equipped to deal with COVID-19 concerns, Starbucks Canada is introducing a number of new protocols that will help them reopen stores nationwide, without putting anybody’s health at risk.\nView this post on Instagram Capture your cloud feeling!
