I recently received a couple of emails with some great photos of two Starbucks Clover locations!  Thank you to the two readers for sending these in!

Prescott, Arizona Starbucks Clover-Reserve store:

Prescott, Arizona gets its first Clover store:

Highway 69 & 89 – “Frontier” Starbucks – grand opening May 9, 2013
1861 East Highway 69
Prescott, Arizona 86301
928 445 4265

This location is a Clover store with a drive-thru.  That is unusual, but it is not the  first.  I have heard that the first drive-thru Starbucks was in Nashville, Tennessee.  Highlands Ranch, Colorado had a drive-thru Clover Starbucks store early on, as well as a drive-thru Clover store in Atlanta, Georgia.

This beautiful new Starbucks in Prescott boasts about 3,000 square feet, and amazing seating both indoors and outdoors.  Outdoor cushioned seating looks a little odd to this Seattleite!  Here’s the Prescott store:

This store looks beautiful!

Oak and Rush, Chicago:

Also, a Chicago reader sent me pictures of the Oak and Rush Clover Starbucks store.  As I understand it, this is a two-story location.  I hope to visit this store someday – I have heard good things about it.  I believe it’s an “Evenings” Starbucks too.  Even better, it is one of just a handful of Starbucks which use a special manual espresso machine called a Simonelli.  I only received a few photos, but they really show that there’s a lot of beauty in this store’s design.

Hope you enjoyed this episode of “from the mailbag”!
