Costa Coffee launches first ‘commuter-focused’ concept store

Costa Coffee has launched its first ‘commuter-focused’ concept store in Lewisham, London.

The chain, which was bought by Coca-Cola in January for £3.9bn, has opened the new Costa Coffee store re-formatting a space originally used as the station managers office.

Lewisham Station is one of eight new mini-format stores that will be opening in some of London’s busiest railway stations over the next six months.

The new stores, which are takeaway only, have been designed to deliver a quick and efficient service.

Connie Emerson, head of global store propositions & design at Costa Coffee,  said: We understand that in today’s busy, fast paced world, our customers want to ensure they can get their Costa Coffee fix, even if they are hurrying to work, so naturally, the next evolution of a store concept had to centre on meeting the needs of busy, on-the-go commuters.

“Our new mini-stores have been designed to offer customers a beautiful barista handcrafted Costa Coffee quickly and conveniently, taking any stress out of grabbing that much needed Costa on the way to work.”

Lewisham Station Costa Coffee store opened its doors on Saturday 24 August, with a further eight mini-stores set to open at stations across London within the next six months.
