Starbucks creates 23 new jobs as first store in Aylesbury opens


A new Starbucks® store will open in Sainsbury’s, Gatehouse Road, Aylesbury, on Wednesday 24 November. The new store will be the first in the local area and will create 23 new jobs.

Customers are invited to enjoy their favourite Starbucks® beverage or try Starbucks® new Holiday menu, including the Caramel Waffle Latte or the Fudge Brownie Hot Chocolate, as well as new food items such as the Very Merry Beyond Meat® Sandwich and Blitzen’s Blue Cheese and Chutney Toastie.

The store will partner with The Nic Willoughby Fund, in memory of a former colleague of the store manager who passed away from a rare heart condition. The charity provides financial support to grassroots sports in Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire, including sponsoring heart screenings for members of local clubs.

Elanor Stevens, new store openings Manager, said: “We are excited to open our new store in Aylesbury and look forward to welcoming the local community. The team will continue to closely follow the latest guidance from both the government and health authorities to keep everyone safe.”

To celebrate the opening, the store will host a ribbon cutting on the morning of Wednesday 24 November. The celebrations will continue throughout the first two weeks of opening as the store plans to distribute leaflets, including a discount on select drinks, in the local area.

The store has a contemporary design, offering customers the opportunity to enjoy a handcrafted cup of coffee and relax with the comfortable seating and free wi-fi. Delivery via Just Eat and Uber Eats will be fully available to all customers. Customers can also order via the Starbucks® UK App, available for iPhone® and Android™, to order ahead, skip the queue and collect to takeaway.

Starbucks® is committed to 100% ethically sourced coffee in partnership with Conservation International. The cornerstone of our ethical sourcing approach to buying coffee is Coffee and Farmer Equity (C.A.F.E.) Practices.  

Starbucks® offers a 25p discount to all customers who bring a reusable cup when purchasing a drink.

The new store is conveniently located at Sainsburys, 90 Gatehouse Road, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, HP19 8ED and open from 7:00am until 8:00pm, Monday to Saturday, and 9:30am to 4:00pm, Sunday.
