A new Starbucks has opened in a retail park in Bournemouth. A former Argos unit, which has been vacant since February 2022, has been transformed into the major coffee brand at Ringwood Road Retail Park.
The new Starbucks has created 16 new jobs in the local area and will be operated by licensee Cobra Coffee, which is based on the south coast. To celebrate the opening on Wednesday (November 1), the store will be offering 50 lucky customers complimentary reusable cups during the first week.
Saoscha O’Connell, Store Manager, said: “I’ve been looking after our neighbouring store in Castlepoint Shopping Centre for the last two years so I’m looking forward to bringing my experience to this new store. We’re really excited to welcome the community, to show off the new store and to meet lots of new faces!”
To reduce food waste, the new store will offer Too Good To Go – a leading surplus food app connecting customers to restaurants and stores that have unsold food. Starbucks offers a 25p discount to all customers who bring a reusable cup when purchasing a drink.
From 26 October, festive favourite beverages returned to Starbucks stores nationwide, exclusively for Starbucks® Rewards members. Members were invited to enjoy the new Holiday Menu, including returning fan favourites Toffee Nut Latte, Eggnog Latte and Caramel Waffle and the brand-new Hazelnut Crunch Hot Chocolate, which will be available to everyone from November 2.
For the first time ever, Starbucks Rewards members can also get their hands on exclusive merchandise early, including the Colour Changing Reusable Hot Cup and Red Bling Cold Cup.
The new store is located at 901 – 905 Ringwood Road, Bournemouth, BH11 8LL, and will be open from 7.30am to 6.30pm on Monday to Saturday, and 9am to 6pm Sundays.
