New Starbucks Store opens on First Street, Manchester
We are excited to welcome customers and visitors from around the Greater Manchester area to our brand new Starbucks store in the city’s new development, First Street. Located in between Deansgate and Oxford Road, the store opened on Friday 27th May and serves seven days a week, creating over 12 new jobs in the area.
Ideally situated within the new retail and business district alongside a student accommodation and a five-star hotel, the store will offer local students, commuters and community members a place to relax and enjoy a cup of coffee, served with smile.
We held a soft opening of the store on Thursday 26th May which was attended by the team from the Queensway Support Office, Starbucks Company and friends and family of the in-store team. We teamed up with a local charity, The Wood Street Mission, who help children and families living in poverty within the Greater Manchester and Salford area. All proceeds from our soft opening were donated to this excellent cause.
Jamie Dewick, Store Support Manager at Queensway Coffee Houses Ltd said, “We’re thrilled to be opening the new Starbucks store in the city centre. The First Street development is a great location and we’re looking forward to being part of the area and getting to know our neighbours and customers.”
Karen Fenwick, Director of franchising and licensing, Starbucks UK said, “It’s exciting to be opening a new store in the heart of this new development in Manchester. It’s important for us to build relationships with different communities and the store opening will be a great way of doing so.”
The store is located on Starbucks, Unit 7b, First Street, Manchester, M15 4FN and will be open 7am-8pm Monday-Friday, 07:30am – 8pm Saturdays and 8:30am-7pm on a Sunday.
