Good news for the many MSI visitors like Cindy30 who have asked for more Starbucks in the Netherlands. More stores are on the way!
The first new store will open is scheduled for the spring of 2009 to be located in Centraal Station in Amsterdam. The plan is to open more stores in other top railway stations and use this as a platform to further expand across the Netherlands. So, just a few more months until we have a store in the heart of Amsterdam! And only a few months after that until there are stores in other cities.
The Centraal Station is undergoing a major renovation and Starbucks is thrilled to be a part of that transformation. We're very excited to a key component of this renovation.
These new stores makes sense, too, as the Netherlands is very important to Starbucks. The Amsterdam Roasting Plant is the only Starbucks roasting plant outside the U.S. It ships coffee to 1,200 stores all over Europe. But until now the only stores we had were in that plant and in Schiphol Airport.
