Going down to Starbucks for a cup of Coffee is common practice for meeting a few friends or colleagues at the start of end of the day. This could all change in the future though as they’re toying with the idea of selling alcohol. A few Beers and a glass of Wine at Starbucks could be the future instead of a skinny Latte or Cappuccino. Starbucks are trying with this idea to fill their stores for most of the day, rather than at just peak times. Therefore serving alcohol could boost up sales and fill their stores during the quiet mid-afternoons and evenings.
Don’t get your hopes up just yet, as they’re only planning to roll this idea out in a few stores in California and Atlanta at the end of 2012.
