Starbucks (SBUX) plans to sell alcohol in the evening at thousands of its stores.

The revelation came from COO Troy Alstead during an interview with Bloomberg.

Starbucks outlets located near movie theaters, restaurants, and areas with an active nightlife are more likely to be tapped for alcohol sales.
