Starbucks will sell alcohol in some Chicago locations


“In an attempt to boost evening sales, Starbucks is planning to sell beer and wine in up to seven new outlets by the end of 2012.

Having already tested outlets – in Washington and Oregon – with alcohol, savory food and entertainment, Starbucks will be opening the new outlets in the Chicago area. If the idea is successful, it could spread nationwide.

In terms of entertainment, music, poetry readings and theatre have all been introduced as part of the testing.

Starbucks’ spokesman Alan Hilowitz, said: “We’re really trying to expand the evening part. Customers have told us they want to be able to come in and have coffee, or a glass of wine.” [Digital Journal]

Great, now the bathroom line is going to be even longer.
