Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ:SBUX) Selects NYC For Its Monument Store

Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ:SBUX) is set to open its largest store in the world in southwest Chelsea, targeting the affluent customers in New York City’s Meatpacking District. The superstore will take up 20,000-square-foot. With the planned superstore, Starbucks isn’t just adding more locations in New York City where it already has many, but is seeking to set up something like a coffee shrine.

Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ:SBUX)’s megastore will be modeled as a Roastery, bringing to New York City a concept that the company has tested for some time in its hometown of Seattle.

A place for customer interaction

There is no doubt that the Seattle Roastery concept has been a success and Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ:SBUX) is looking to expand to more regions. In New York City, the company has chosen a location that puts its closer to affluent customers. Starbucks’ new superstore will be situated at 61 Ninth Ave. not far from a Google office in the city. The store will also be close a major Apple retail store.

Starbucks’ superstore is expected to open in 2018.
