Starbucks (Seattle) is planning to unite three of its current stores in Seattle under its new “Heritage Market” concept, according to a company press release. This includes the brand’s original store at 1912 Pike Place, its store at 1st and Pike, and the new pick-up location on the corner of 1st and University.

The coffee maker says together the stores represent the company’s “historic past, present, and its re-imagined future,” with each location offering an “elevated experience” for guests. Employees will receive training to provide guided tours and become fully certified “Coffee Masters,” a recognition bestowed by Starbucks.

The stores at 1st and Pike and 1st and University will undergo slight renovations and close temporarily so the company can hire, train and staff the stores.

“This innovative project is a direct result of feedback from our partners who want a closer connection to our heritage along with an enhanced focus on coffee, craft and the local community,” says Cora Carter, District Manager for the Seattle Market.
