Coffee lovers, here's a bargain for you: Starbucks is closing their online store as of October 1 and liquidating what's left in it. So while you'll no longer be able to order an insulated mug or a pour over coffee maker from them online after next month, you can snag those very things and more right now, for a sweet discount of up to 50 percent.
Business Insider reported the news of the online store closing last week, with company spokesperson Maggie Jantzen saying that "[c]ontinued integration of these digital and mobile customer connections into our store experience is among the highest priorities for us, and to enhance that focus we've looked for ways to simplify our current efforts."
Instead of continuing to sell merch online, Starbucks plans to focus on collaborating with other brands, like they have in the past with Lilly Pulitzer and Ban.do. They "will enable us to leverage our brand, our global retail footprint, and the customer base in order to extend our reach," CEO Kevin Johnson said on a July earnings call that BI quoted in their story.
On to the sale: There's more than just siren logo mugs on discount (because don't we all have enough of those already?); the shop has a variety of coffee and tea makers from brands like Bodum, Aeropress, Beanplus, and Bialetti (yes, that iconic stovetop espresso maker), as well as one of our favorite brands of water pitchers, Soma.
If you could use a little something extra to trim your tree, there are also a few ornaments for sale (which would also make cute stocking stuffers for Starbucks-obsessed family or friends).
