The mayor of Saffron Walden was invited to officially reopen Starbucks on Saturday.
The store has had a full makeover which includes new flooring and LED lighting, modern sofas and seating, and modernised toilets.
The reopening was attended by the mayor, Councillor Paul Fairhurst, and a representative of a charity supported by the store manager - the Matt Smyth Memorial Foundation.
Louise Smyth, from the Matt Smyth Memorial Foundation, said: “We would like to thank the Starbucks manager, Alanis Shakespeare, for allowing us to keep a collection pot on the counter of the Saffron Walden store. We are so close to our £5,000 target to register as a charity to help other children who lose a parent in road traffic accidents.”
Alanis Shakespeare, store manager, said: “We are over the moon with our new and improved store, it has needed a bit of TLC and we are looking forward to seeing customer reactions and also seeing new faces.”
