For Immediate Release: September 13, 2016

A Starbucks inside Dierbergs Lafayette Center store in Manchester opened Tuesday for customers to sip and snack while they shop.

This is the third in-store Starbucks location for Dierbergs, a 25-store supermarket chain primarily operating in the St. Louis-metropolitan area. Later this month, Dierbergs will open a fourth Starbucks location in its West Oak store in Creve Coeur. The company previously opened two Starbucks locations in 2015 within its Des Peres and Brentwood Pointe locations.

“We’re incredibly pleased to grow our partnership with Starbucks,” said Dierbergs Markets CEO, Greg Dierberg. “In stores where they’re already located, the Starbucks brand has become a valued part of the Dierbergs experience and culture. We’re excited to further improve our customers’ experience as we move forward with our two new locations.”

Starbucks’ story began in 1971 and has since grown to serve millions of customers each day through exceptional products and 22,000 retail stores in 67 countries. With a strong belief in serving the best coffee possible, Starbucks coffee is grown under the highest standards of quality. Their mission is to inspire and nurture the human spirit – one person, one cup and one neighborhood at a time.

Dierbergs Markets traces its roots to a country store founded in 1854 in West St. Louis County. Four generations have managed the company, which had only one location until 1967. Today, Dierbergs employs 4,100 Associates in 24 St. Louis metropolitan-area stores and a location at Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks.
