Starbucks Canada to Reopen Stores by end of June

Starbucks Canada is reopening cafes and patio seating for customers, with the aim to have nearly half of its company-owned stores open by the end of June. They're aiming to reopen for dine in on a community-by-community basis, starting in B.C. where 16 stores opened last week.

Starbucks has been and is currently working closely with local leadership, health authorities and provincial governments as restrictions start to lift across the country. As the company rolls out dine in service, Starbucks' precautionary measures will prioritize their employees and customers safety.

So obviously you're asking yourself how this will work? So the plan is for Indoor and outdoor seating to be significantly reduced to accommodate six-foot spacing between tables and to prioritize physical distancing in the cafe lobby and customer waiting areas.

All tables will be sanitized between each customer, Floor markers and signage will be made to show customers how to navigate through the store and remain physically distant. There will also be a plexi-shield at the POS and handoff area as an additional barrier of protection. All employees will be wearing facial coverings adhering to Starbucks safety measures.

Customers can order to-go or to stay if seating is available. Just an added note, Starbucks will still continue to pause personal cups and "for here" ware as a precautionary measure to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Another note to consider, is that since the majority of Canadian stores are open for grab-and-go, customers can walk into a cafe and pay with any method at the counter. They also encourage downloading and using the Starbucks App for contactless payment as well as to save time by ordering ahead and paying with your Starbucks App. Mobile orders can be picked up at the designated handoff area inside the cafe or at the drive-thru.

So let's get our Starbucks on...safely.
