February 26, 2020, Toronto, Ont. – Starbucks has opened its first Canadian pickup store in Toronto’s Commerce Court.

The store is designed for customers on-the-go. It is the first of its kind in Canada and only second in the world to New York City’s Penn Plaza, which opened in November.

Unlike Starbucks cafés, the Starbucks® Pickup store was developed with a different customer in mind.

“This unique location was designed for an order-ahead experience,” says Michael Conway, president of Starbucks Canada.

“Customers who mobile order and pay with their Starbucks Rewards app will know exactly when their order is ready (thanks to a digital board that displays order status) and can pick up their handcrafted beverage and food items directly from a Starbucks barista.”

In addition to being fully dedicated to mobile orders, the pickup store at Commerce Court is also unique in that it has a smaller store footprint, does not offer seating, but still offers the full beverage and food assortment found at local Starbucks cafés.
