I’m gobsmacked. No really, I am.
Am I right in thinking that Starbucks is to open yet another outlet in Reading town centre – in the most ambitious location imaginable?
Am I right in thinking that Starbucks will be muscling in next door to Picnic, directly opposite Costa Coffee (itself adjacent to another coffee shop) and diagonally opposite Coffee Republic (adjacent to Pret)?
Tell me it isn’t true. I know Starbucks have a pretty aggressive location policy… but this takes the biscuit (or blueberry muffin).
