A stylish experiential coffee boutique is now open at Union Station
Explore Nespresso’s newest shop in downtown Toronto
The commute through Union Station just got a major upgrade with the opening of a Nespresso boutique. Officially launched to the public on Nov. 14, this chic coffee lover’s dream provides high-end retail experiences with a focus on personalization and connection. With self-checkout, order pickup and even home delivery, commuters will have a quick and easy way to sample and purchase their favourite coffee on their way home from work.
An upscale experience
One of 35 locations across Canada and 12 in the GTA, the space is intentionally designed to captivate commuters and entice them to explore what the upscale coffee brand has to offer. With an open-concept layout, a warm and vibrant colour palette and inviting seating areas, a visit to this concept boutique is a soothing way to start the day.
The boutique also allows customers to try a variety of Nespresso capsule flavours—in the form of lattes, double espressos and other tasty beverages—and when they’ve found their favourite, they can purchase it through the boutique’s Self Selection and automatic checkout service.
Designed with convenience in mind, the boutique offers self-service for a quick and quiet shopping experience (especially for early morning commuters who haven’t had their coffee yet). It’s as easy as walking in, grabbing a bag, filling it with your Nespresso capsules or other merchandise of choice, and using the self-service machine to check out.
Positioning the boutique strategically within Canada’s most bustling transportation hub, Nespresso was eager to enhance commuters’ convenience even further through both pickup and delivery services. Now, you can place orders online two to three hours in advance and seamlessly pick them up while commuting to or from work. The brand also offers home delivery services from this boutique, so you can place your order without having to carry anything during rush hour on the TTC or GO Train.
The boutique also houses a recycling corner where customers can drop off their used capsules without a hitch. No more detours, just a quick pop-by during your daily commute, meaning sustainability has never been easier.
Holiday shopping made easy
Looking for a totally unique gift for the latte lover on your list? The retail experience includes gift wrapping for holiday shoppers, as well as custom laser engraving for adding a personal touch to Nespresso travel mugs, barista glasses and more.
Customers can also indulge in Nespresso’s lineup of holiday launches, featuring a special-edition Vertuo Advent calendar, sleek Nespresso martini glasses, the new compact Vertuo Pop+ machine (the smallest size yet) and an assortment of indulgent, festive flavours including Frosted Caramel Nut, Festive Black, Seasonal Delight Spices, Gingerbread and Peppermint Pinwheel.
Store opening celebration
To mark the launch, Nespresso invites all Torontonians to Union Station’s Bay Concourse area, around the corner from the boutique, on Dec. 6 and 7 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Customers will get to experience the store’s offerings first-hand, enjoy free festive coffee and take pics with the brand’s exclusive Alpine Gondola—the ultimate setup for some winter-themed selfies. If customers snap a photo of the seasonal installation and share it on their social media using the tag #NespressoMoments, they could win a travel mug (available while supplies last). Additionally, they’ll be automatically entered into an exciting contest with the chance to win the entire holiday collection, featuring a stylish white Vertuo Pop+.
