Sunday 23 October 2011 06:27

Starbucks put 31 of its British coffee shops on the market this week as part of plans to trim its global portfolio.

The sites include two in the City of London, and one each in Birmingham's Bull Ring centre, Princes Square in Glasgow and Market Place in Wigan.

A spokeswoman for Starbucks UK said: "Like many other retailers, we are discussing options with landlords for a small number of our UK stores. However, we do not have any specific announcements at this time."
