Starbucks opened today in the Airport of Madeira. Passengers departing the island today will have been the first to see the new retail outlet.
How long this kind of store will last on the island, time will tell. When I first mentioned Starbucks coming to the airport, 90% of the comments were negative with people asking why we need it when we have fantastic coffee of our own.
If you are leaving the island over the next few weeks it will be good to hear from you and your thoughts on the place, even if you don’t buy.
