There is a new Starbucks based at the former Newmarket Inn and Hotel on the Old Brighton Road, BN7 3JJ. They are open from 7:00am to 7:00pm Monday to Friday, 7:00am to 7:00pm Saturdays, and 8:00am to 6:00pm Sundays.
To reduce food waste, the new store offers Too Good To Go – a leading surplus food app connecting customers to restaurants and stores that have unsold food.
Starbucks offers a 25p discount to all customers who bring a reusable cup when purchasing a drink. Anyone who works in the UK emergency services, the NHS or the armed forces can apply for the Blue Light Card or the Defence Privilege Card and receive a ten per cent discount at Starbucks.
Customers can order via the Starbucks UK App, available for iPhone® and Android™, to order ahead, skip the queue and collect to takeaway.
Starbucks Store Manager Simon Springate, 52, said:
“The store is brand new, shiny and dog friendly which is a real plus for a lot of people. I used to work in another coffee store in Lewes so people might recognise me from my time there where I used to love hosting the local ladies football team. We’ve already got regulars who we are getting to know by name – we have had people waiting outside at 7am. Being able to pre-order on the app is a real plus for some people especially emergency services who need to grab and go. We also see faces from Falmer University and Brighton and Hove Albion. We have a great team with people from 18 to 60 and we’ve all settled in really well.”
Starbucks Barista Mel Marten, 65, said:
“The atmosphere here is lovely and we’ve been getting lovely reviews from customers. We will help in any way possible plus we have got the outside seating with the umbrellas for when the sun is out. It’s just a very warm and nice atmosphere. I’m so happy to be here. The colleagues are like another family and the customers are so lovely.”
