Starbucks in the Stamford Quarter’s Foundation is Officially Open

Starbucks’ brand new coffee shop in the Stamford Quarter’s Foundation building has officially opened today (Friday 24th May).

The new 1,708 sq ft cafe is located on the ground floor of Foundation, Altrincham’s new hub of workspace, retail, and leisure in the heart of Stamford Quarter. The new Starbucks space provides an impressive arrival experience with a calming colour palette of neutral tones and shades of green, as well as a mixture of wood and brass materials throughout, it’s a new haven on the high street.

To celebrate, this morning the store offered goody bags to the first 50 customers through the door. Altrincham residents should also keep an eye out across town this weekend for the Starbucks team, as they will be handing out discounted drink vouchers.

The new cafe has spacious seating for 40 inside with an al fresco area overlooking Stamford Square which is currently undergoing redevelopment and due to open in the summer.

Eleven new jobs have been created for the new opening, with Starbucks teaming up with homelessness charity Only a Pavement Away to recruit local candidates.

Customers can enjoy Starbucks Summer menu, now back at Starbucks stores nationwide. This includes the brand-new Crème Brulée x Iced Brown Sugar Oat Shaken Espresso, Crème Brulée x Cold Brew, Crème Brulée x Brown Sugar Frappuccino® blended beverage, Dragon Coconut Starbucks Refresha® Drink and returning Mango Dragonfruit Starbucks Refresha® Drink.
