One of the biggest names in coffee will bring its signature flavors to the University
of Memphis Official Campus Store this fall. The Campus Store will close its current
café operation at the end of the spring semester and plans to tentatively unveil its
new Starbucks Café in time for back-to-school this fall.
“We’re always looking for opportunities to enhance the shopping experience and our
new Starbucks Café will do just that,” said Donna Collier, store manager. “The Café
will provide a quality assortment of coffees, teas, sandwiches and more while also
serving as a perfect spot for students to study or chat.”
