Caribou Coffee Coming to Barrington's Jewel-Osco

The coffee chain will be located in the front of the grocery store.

customers will soon have another reason to shop at the local grocer. Caribou Coffee is moving in.

The national coffee retailer will be occupying a kiosk in the store near the new bakery section. The Barrington Jewel-Osco is one of only three stores in the Chicago area where the coffee chain is testing kiosk stores.

Caribou is expected to open inside of Jewel-Osco in the next 30 to 60 days.

“It will be good for the community to have more options,” Economic and Community Development Director Peg Blanchard said. “It’s great to keep sales dollars in the community instead of having people go elsewhere,” she said.

The Caribou Coffee will have a full seating area with free WiFi for customers to enjoy.  

The new Caribou isn’t the only thing changing at Jewel-Osco. The store is also expanding its liquor department to allow for more diverse alcohol sales.

Who cares, Jewel is too expensive to shop at. Barrington Jewel numbers have to be down, you don't see as many cars there as you used to. How about lowering your prices to get more customers.
