The World’s Largest 43,000 Square-Feet Starbucks Is Opening In Chicago This Fall

Who could be surprised by the fact that Starbucks, one of the world’s most renowned coffee shop brands, is opening yet another coffee shop? Not us. But even if you’re tired of seeing it on every corner wherever you go, they’re offering something you will not be able to take your eyes off of. Soon, the city which is second in line for having the most Starbucks stores will welcome quite an extraordinary store – Starbucks Reserve Roastery.

In 2014, Starbucks opened its first Reserve Roastery in Seattle and since it was a big hit, it was just a matter of time since the company started popping out a lot more of these premium coffee stores.

Today, there are already 6 locations: Seattle, New York, Shanghai, Tokyo, Milan, and very soon – Chicago.

In 2017, Starbucks announced plans to turn a closed Crate & Barrel store into its biggest coffee shop yet.

The 43,000 square foot, 4 story building is located in Chicago’s Magnificent Mile retail district and is set to open as a brand new Reserve Roastery on November 15.

It seems that these premium brand roasteries are getting bigger and bigger with each location. Last year, Starbucks opened a dazzling 25,000-square-foot store in Milan and just earlier this year, a new 32,000-square-foot cafe began welcoming coffee enthusiasts.

The new one in Chicago is not only impressive for its size but also for dubbing as a coffee shop, cocktail bar, roastery bakery and what not. While many of the details are saved for the grand opening, it’s clear that this is not an ordinary Starbucks coffee store.

I've never been there and won't because they pay no tax. Bunch of shits and they're also ruining lots of independent café owners. I seriously don't like this news.
