Starbucks introduces back-to-school offer for Canadian teachers

    "Great Start for Great Teachers" pours complimentary cups of coffee for
    teachers during the month of September

    TORONTO, Sept. 2 /CNW/ - On Mondays during the month of September,
beginning September 8, teachers, grades K-12, across Western Canada and
Ontario are invited to a complimentary tall size (12 fl. oz.) cup of brewed
coffee at their local Starbucks coffee house.
    "After a relaxing summer, we thought that teachers deserve a special
kick-start into the new school year," said Colette Bennett, B.C. Marketing
Manager, Starbucks Coffee Canada. "This surprise and delight campaign is our
way of saying thank you and recognizing the contribution that teachers give to
our communities."
    Starbucks recognizes the relationship between our success and the
strength and vitality of the communities in which we do business, of which
teachers play an invaluable role. All company-operated Starbucks locations are
encouraged to foster relationships with nearby schools and our partners try to
be good neighbors and active contributors in the communities where they live
and work.
    In order to receive their complimentary cup of coffee, teachers are asked
to provide proof of teacher status such as a teachers' federation card or
school district badge, though any current form of teacher identification will
be accepted. The "Great Start for Great Teachers" special offer ends after
Monday, September 29.
