So, we were grocery shopping tonight at Safeway in Kitsilano. Our Safeway has been undergoing renovations for some time. Today, we saw one new area that is most definitely becomming a Starbucks. It doesn’t say so yet, but we can tell. And, what do you know, right at the bottom of our receipt is a “You have purchased 0 of 7 Starbucks beverages towards your free drink” or something. So, yes, Starbucks is coming to Safeway. And with a partnership so large that Starbucks is finally doing the free beverage thing.

Here is the info from the Safeway website.
