STARBUCKS has said they have no plans to go cashless in the UK stores after one of their outlets in Bradford posted a sign declaring the coffee shop was to go cashless next month.

People took to social media to express their displeasure about Starbucks going cashless next month.

A sign outside Starbucks on Rooley Lane in Bradford read: "We're going cashless. From 1st October 2022 we will only be accepting card, contactless and Starbucks awards payments. Please ask our team for further details."

The cashless payments announcement at Starbucks involves certain licensees as people took to social media to question the decision, calling it "outrageous" and saying that customers should be given a "choice".

The coffee retailer has clarified the matter, as a spokesperson from Starbucks said: "Starbucks has no plans to go cashless across our UK stores and we want to shut down any inaccuracies or further speculation on this matter.

"In the UK, we operate alongside various licensee business partners, which means this may vary from store to store and the majority of stores continue to offer cash payments to customers."
