  • Starbucks is accepting only credit or debit cards and mobile payments at its coffee shop inside the Russell Investments Center downtown. The company will solicit feedback from customers throughout the pilot program and decide if it wants to expand the cashless model to other locations.
  • Crown Hill’s long-running Original Pancake House outpost, part of a Portland-based chain, has closed. The space will reopen in early April as Crown Hill Broiler.
  • When Amazon bought Whole Foods last summer, it dropped the price on a slew of items, including the ever-popular rotisserie chicken. With whole birds going as cheaply as $6.99, here’s how the grocer is meeting rising demand.
