This group has helped inform us of the inconsistent experiences photographers have in our stores. We have put group discussion on hold until we have more updates on an official policy for photography in our stores. We appreciate your patience and encourage you to check back in the following months for an update.
Group DescriptionCalling all Starbucks fans - this group is for you! On behalf of Starbucks, I welcome you to our new group. I hope you use this group to share your Starbucks Experience. Whether that means uploading photos of your favorite drink or sharing stories in the discussion area, I'm excited to learn what Starbucks means to you.
I'm here to help so please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.
