Earlier this month, Starbucks announced Canada would get its first mobile pickup store, only the second such store in the world, located in downtown Toronto, Ontario.
As of this morning, this new Starbucks pickup location at 25 King Street West at Commerce Court, is now open and ready for your mobile orders. The store will only be serving orders placed via mobile and for pickup only, meeting the needs of those in a hurry in downtown Toronto.
“This unique location was designed for an order-ahead experience,” said Michael Conway, president of Starbucks Canada, in a recent statement to iPhone in Canada. “Customers who Mobile Order & 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.”
This new store has digital signage to inform customers of when their orders will be ready, as it displays customer names and real-time status updates, such as “Ready”. Another sign below shows the date, daily and hourly weather updates, along with TTC service alerts.
This Starbucks mobile pickup-only store will be open from Monday to Friday from 6am to 6pm—just select “PICKUP – Commerce Court” in the Starbucks mobile app.
The only other dedicated Starbucks pickup location in the world is at Penn Plaza, in New York City.
