I was walking down the street yesterday when a man, obviously a tourist, asked me where to find Starbucks. When I told him we didn’t have a Starbucks he look aghast, as though he’d taken a right turn in Borden and ended up on the Moon.
It seems this is about to change. Speculation has been swirling that the old Tweel’s store at the corner of Kent and University, recently under heavy renovation and shrouded in construction cladding, is being renovated into the Island’s first Starbucks.
While there’s been no confirmation of this as the new location, the fact that Starbucks is currently advertising for a Store Manager for Prince Edward Island would seem to suggest that the rumours are at least partially true.
