Re: Re: Starbucks in the Rebel City
😮 Following the news that Starbucks will have its first stand-alone unit in Dublin city centre opening in the near future – I can also tell you that the Seattle-based coffee chain have also assessed 3 possible units in Cork city centre (where Gloria Jeans is the main coffee-specialist chain existing at the present) for their first store in the city. 2 of the units are on or along near Patrick’s Street and 1 is supposedly located on one of the side-streets off the main thoroughfaure (Princes Street[?]). However, other suitable units are still be weighed up. When open, the unit will create up to 20 jobs and should heat up the competition nicely. No confirmation or specific date has been allocated for the time being however,
Unitl some of the more traditional spots in Dublin and Cork are forced to close due to Starbucks invade and conquer policy. For example, whilst people seem to welcome McCafe’s there is uproar when Bewleys closes! Is there a link? I am not sure, but I think there must be.
