Creature Comforts had it's last day as a merchandise location on January 5, 2015. It underwent a refurbishment and was converted to a Starbucks location, soft opening on June 18th and officially opening on June 19th, 2015.
The new location offers a selection of Starbucks drinks and snacks and a portion of the locations proceeds will go towards conservation efforts for the cotton-top tamarins. A portion of the sale of each Starbucks Flat White Latte at the reopened Creature Comforts will benefit conservation programs already underway to help preserve the cotton-top tamarin in Colombia.
The tamarins recently moved into a new exhibit at the entrance to the Discovery Island Trails a short way up the path from the new Starbucks location.
