If you reside in Manchester – good news! A Friends themed cafe is set to open down the Primark mega store on Market Street.
The Central Perk Café is opening soon in collaboration with Warner Bros. to commemorate 25 years since the sitcom first hit television screens. The cafe will be full with massive coffee cups and Big Apple-themed drinks, with limited edition branded items on deck for purchase. The cafe will too have a focus on viability, using ethically sourced coffee beans and compostable cups. Primark’s director of new business development, Tim Kelly, spoke: “We are hugely excited to be bringing the first branded Central Perk Café in fashion retail in the UK to the British high street. “Customers can relax and have fun there whilst also enjoying our amazing fashion at amazing prices in our Manchester store.”
The cafe opens June 12th (Wednesday), thereby get down early to claim the best seats which, if it goes like the show, will then be yours evermore. Giving you can’t get to Manchester to unwind in the cafe, then just viewing the sitcom could help to ease you. The show can evidently be particularly soothing for persons experiencing anxiety, accordant to clinical psychologist Marc Hekster. Chatting with reporters, he explained: “Having worked for over a period of 20 years with those experiencing anxiety, I can conclude that among other factors, it is the repetitive and relational nature of programs such as Friends and Big Bang Theory that will be doing the trick. [Watching Friends] is about an experience of repair, of watching the characters in the show repeatedly having worries, which then get repaired and soothed, usually in the context of other relationships in their lives. Complex problems are made the focus of each episode, and then they are resolved within the relationships which are the essence of the shows. It is pure escapism – excellent, bring it on.”
