CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (WIVB)– A local Starbucks is serving up some positive energy along with its Pumpkin Spice Lattes!
Employees at the coffee shop in the Walden Galleria started a positivity board for customers, other mall employees, or anyone that needs to add a bright spot to their day!
The board was started by the store’s general manager Kayla Gupta.
The concept is a simple one. People are provided with a sticky note and a sharpie and are encouraged to leave a short,uplifting message.
A joke, good news, or even a kind word will do. If you want to leave a note but the board is full, employees encourage you to take a message home,spreading the love full circle.
Customers say they appreciate the gesture. Simone Jones, a frequent customer who works in the mall,thinks the small show of support could help someone in a big way.
“A lot of people are going through things that you don’t even know about. They don’t show it on their face. This could make their day in a way you don’t even realize,” Jones said.
Visit the store Monday-Saturday from 8:30 a.m.-9:30 p.m. or Sunday 10 a.m-6:30 p.m. to leave(or take) a nice note with your coffee!
