The first drive-thru Starbucks store in Alnwick has opened today (November 7) in Willowburn Retail Park.
The store, operated by Starbucks licensee 23.5 Degrees, will create 20 new jobs for the local area.

It will be attended by the Duchess of Northumberland Jane Percy; Mayor of Alnwick Lynda Wearn; chairperson of the Alnwick Chamber of Trade Lisa Aynsley; and representatives from the store’s charity partner, HospiceCare North Northumberland.
There are coffee samplings being held throughout the day, and customers are invited to sample food and drinks from the Starbucks menu.

“We are proud to support HospiceCare North Northumberland, which is a charity close to our hearts and is the main provider of free palliative care in North Northumberland.”
