Starbucks South Korea opens its largest store yet

Starbucks South Korea has opened its largest store yet, celebrating the brand’s 21st anniversary in the country.

Located in Yangpyeong, Gyeonggido near the Namhan River, the store spans three floors and occupies a 1203sqm area and has a design unlike any other in the market.

“The new store is a reflection of Starbucks commitment to offering more ways for customers in Korea to enjoy the Starbucks Experience,” the company said in a statement. 

The Yangpyeong store is also the first Starbucks in the country to feature a Reserve coffee bar, Teavana bar and drive-thru format together.

The company said the store is “a new experience” for local customers, incorporating an interactive space and the convenience of the drive-thru. Starbucks is to invite local talent to perform on the store’s rooftop to celebrate the launch.
