National Crisis: Starbucks Closing 600 Stores!!
In towns as small as Bloomfield, N.M., and metropolises as large as New York, customers and city officials are starting to write letters, place phone calls, circulate petitions and otherwise plead with the coffee giant to change its mind.Devastated. Wow! Just over a cup of coffee. What would happen if ...., uh, well, nothing else could possibly be this bad.
"Now that it's going away, we're devastated," said Kate Walker, a facilities manager for SunGard Financial Systems, a software company, who recently learned of a store closing in New York City.
I suggest some enterprising local entrepreneurs open coffee shops that serve coffee just as good at a lower price, which would not be difficult at all. Of course, it wouldn't be Starbucks. How could the coffee snobs drink coffee that wasn't Starbucks, even if it was just as good or better and cost less?
m-g - however many, it's more than we need.
The coffee made at home in my Bunn home brewer, Folger's Columbian, is great. When out and about, I drink coffee from Dunkin' Doughnuts. It's pretty darned good coffee.
I used to eat, sleep, and breathe Yuban. I drank it exclusively for decades. But they have destroyed the flavor and aroma somehow. They went "green", you know. It's undrinkable now.
