Starbucks Offers Value Meals
In response to reduced consumer spending and a decline in sales, Starbucks has announced their version of a value meal. You can get a tall (12 oz.) Pike Place coffee and a breakfast sandwich or a tall latte and oatmeal for $3.95.
Although I don’t remember the prices from memory, either of the above combinations would cost about $5-$6.
Starbucks has generally declined to reduce prices amidst a struggling economy to maintain their premium brand image. This is probably the first of many value combos the coffee giant will offer to be viable in tough times.
