The only Starbucks we have here in Alexandria is inside of the Albertson's Grocery Store. It is a very small "stand" and they are very limited on what they offer. I saw an ad in our paper this week from Kroger saying they now have a Starbucks inside but I haven't been there yet to check it out.
If I get a gift card from Starbucks I can spend it at one of these two places but I'd rather have a gift card from some other store that I could use more readily. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the GIFT!!!!!! I never turn down a gift.
Starbucks does have some very good coffee's. My wife hates coffee but she has been known to drink the Blended Cream Frappachino. Check out what Starbucks offers here: http://www.starbucks.com/
They have so much to offer. You can use your gift card here at their website too.
