Starbucks joins the Parkhurst community on 4th Avenue

Starbucks is adding its own iconic touch to the trendy neighbourhood coffee shop ambience on Parkhurst’s popular 4th Avenue strip with a brand new store, offering the full Starbucks experience.

Starbucks Parkhurst, located at 31 4th Avenue on the corner of 12th Street, is opening with a Cortado (two ristretto shots topped with warm silky milk) and Croissant special 20% discount offer for the weekend of 30 July to 1 August.

The new store’s manager is Teeman Mncube, who says the Parkhurst market is a perfect fit for the Starbucks brand. “We’re excited about joining the vibrant Parkhurst community, and we’re committed to making sure that our store is an ideal place for people to gather, relax, socialise or work, and enjoy themselves, while experiencing their favourite or soon-to-be favourite items on our food and beverages menu. There’s always something for everyone, and the Starbucks partners are here to welcome customers with our friendly ‘Be My Guest’ spirit.”

The store’s operating hours are from 6am to 6pm, seven days a week, depending on lockdown restrictions.

Starbucks Parkhurst features the full range of Starbucks hot and cold beverages, as well as a selection of delicious treats, including muffins, brownies and macarons. The brand’s wide range of premium coffees, and warm and friendly service from the skilled and knowledgeable partners, are now readily accessible at the new spot on 4th Avenue in Parkhurst. Starbucks coffee is 99% ethically sourced and accredited by Conservation International under the C.A.F.E. Practices programme.
