On April 17, 2011, a new (licensed) Starbucks opened up in Seattle, located inside Swedish Medical Center. It might be the first Starbucks in Seattle with the new logo. If anyone knows of a new Starbucks logo in the city of Seattle which was on display before April 17, 2011, please let me know! (The Starbucks located in SODO 8 does not count. I have no doubt it has the new logo, but it is not open to the public!) For those who don't remember, Starbucks unveiled their new logo on January 5, 2011. The address of this store is as follows:
Starbucks Swedish Medical Center Jefferson Tower 1600 East Jefferson Street Seattle, WA 98122
I would never know it is a licensed store if I were just an ordinary customer passing by. Here is this beautiful store and its gorgeous logo:
If you are looking for more sightings of the new logo, here are two suggestions:
- In a previous StarbucksMelody.com blog article, Sebastian Birr spotted the new logo in Prague.
- A New York City blogger (Nick's Coffee and the City Blog) took some photos of the new logo in Times Square.
And for more logo fun, take a look at the new Seattle's Best Coffee logo on one of their stores at 4th and Spring in Seattle.
If you've seen the new logo on a Starbucks, do tell!
