Starbucks’ new, much-heralded policy of allowing people to chill in their stores whether they’re customers or not isn’t the only big news out of the US-based coffee giant this week.

 

They’ve also opened what’s being called their “second-largest” store in the world yesterday, and it’s right here in Bangkok.

 

The brand new store — dubbed the second-largest by the mall’s PR team —  is located on the first floor of CentralWorld and features a co-working space and two meeting rooms. It looks nearly as neat as the world’s largest Starbucks, in Shanghai, which stretches over some 2,694 square meters.

looks classy

 

I may visit it next time I'm there as there's close connection between Starbucks, me and this forum i.e. I never patronized Starbucks in my life until I met one of our members who suggested we have coffee in the place, my only time ever in that chain

Having a coffee, croissant & doing a little reading is one of the more pleasant things to do during the daytime.

 

Even if walking around sightseeing, eventually it's good to rest the legs.

 

However, I'm not at all keen on Starbucks allowing non customers to use the facilities.   If I'm paying for a coffee, I expect a comfortable armchair & don't want that occupied by non-customers.  Also in places like Pattaya, there is already a bit of a problem with cheapskate customers occupying certain food chains, making lots of noise & not buying anything,   Typically people from India.

 

I expect to have a seat & prefer a quiet environment.    I also don't expect to subsidize non-customers, as the price paid for the coffee is also to cover the overhead for the premises.
