Starbucks Is Opening A 'Pick-Up Only' Location


This world is becoming less and less communicative day by day when it comes to actually speaking to one another without using a device. Depending on the type of person you are, this can be taken as a blessing or a total curse. If you’re someone who would rather stay out of everyone’s way and have everyone do the same for you, this is the kind of world you’d like to live in. If you are someone who thrives in the presence of others, and that is your desired way to communicate, then the way the world works now is very likely not your cup of tea.

If you do like the lack of in-person communication, and you prefer to stay within your little bubble, then keep your fingers crossed that Starbucks opens more than one of these kinds of stores. It is being said that Starbucks is about to open the doors of their very first ever “pick-up only” location in New York City. This means that if you love the grab and go aspect of ordering in advance and using their app, even right here in Calgary, then this is right up your alley.

If you’re anything like me, you’re not one for the “click and collect”. Thinking about it now, though, I’m not entirely sure why. It’s quick, effective, you get paying out of the way and don’t have to wait in any lines... but then you also completely skip the old school and somewhat social aspect of looking into the eyes of the person who is taking your order, and also saying “thank-you”.

Knowing a huge corporation like Starbucks, I’m sure we won’t be surprised if this is a concept that catches on. Also, if you’re a fan of working hard and not a fan of communicating with other people… you may want to consider a job at a Starbucks location like this if it becomes a thing.
