Last Wednesday, Findlay saw the opening of a Starbucks at the Kroger on Tiffin Avenue. Starbucks is a coffee shop so many people were excited to see it finally come to Findlay.
Kroger decided to bring in Starbucks since they were remodeling the inside of the store and wanted to replace the bank that was currently in there. The line for Starbucks since the opening of the store has been very long and people have been flooding to the store to get their cup of coffee.
“Once the construction is finished and the store has been renovated, I believe that Starbucks will help bring a lot more business to the Kroger on Tiffin,” Senior Scout Klousing said.
Starbucks could affect the business of other local coffee shops around Findlay.
“I think that for the first couple months local stores such as George House, and Coffee Amici will see a slight dip in revenue, but in the long run it won’t really affect them due to the fact that they are cheaper and have more of a, ‘sit down and study aspect to them’,” Scout said.
A major question about Starbucks is, was it wise inside of Kroger; or should they have their own building?
“I think that it was a smart choice for them to start off in Kroger to see what the market in Findlay is like, the downside is that people might forget about them and it’s also kind of weird to walk in to Kroger just to get a cup of coffee,” Scout said.
People in Findlay can now rejoice because have their very own Starbucks. The news has already spread of the shop and the line is out the door.
