    Re: Is your Starbucks closing?

    Persoanlly, i think Starbucks is overrated. You people whine about the high gas prices ( which are even higher here in Europe ) but still pay $10 bucks for a cop of coffee. Ok i know that isn't true but i'm not far off...

    Four of the seven we had in Fargo are closing.
    Doesn't bother me... I don't drink coffee.

    I've never been to a starbucks. Don't drink coffee. I laugh in the morning when I see a line of idiots with their cars/trucks/suvs running while they wait in line to buy a $5 coffee. To each their own though, I waste money too.
    I can make a better cup of coffee for under a dollar. Foolish.

    I'm surprised it took people this long to figure out that you can buy a 6-PAK of beer for less than you can buy 1 cup of Starbucks coffee.

    Which would you rather have?
    Water, unless you have a pack of Miller Lite sitting there.

    Not sure what the company was thinking by putting a Starbucks on every block like New York especially when Dunkin Donuts is better.

    I work on 33rd and Park, and there are about 8 in a radius of a few blocks.

    Starbucks mistake was leaving the cocaine and nicotine out of there coffee. A Tim Horton's on every street corner still wouldn't be enough...

    It figures that a company predominantly freqented by liberals would have a petition to try to convice Starbucks to keep certain stores open.
    They dont understand that a business exists to make a profit, not to be a public service or to employ people.

    But since Starbucks is owned and run by liberals as well they just might actually listen to the petition, so I am not saying it is a stupid idea.
    Just telling.
    I didn't know that starbucks was only predominantly frequented by liberals? In fact I don't believe it. Got proof of that claim?
    My guess is the owners of Starbucks know a little more about business than you.

    Have you ever been to one???

    Note that I didnt say "only" like you did, I said "predominantly" which doesnt mean that everyone is liberal that shops there, it just means over 50%
    Anyone that would claim that over 50% of Starbucks clients are not liberal would probably also say that there is no liberal slant to the media.


    Just like I would think it safe to say that somewhere over 50% of the people that would go to a Bass Pro Shops or Cabela's would be conservative.
    Not to say no liberals shop there, but I bet it would be somewhere south of 50%.
    I have no actual data, but I feel pretty confident in my assumptions based solely on imperical data and observations.


    And as far as the owners of Starbucks knowing more "about business" than me, I have owned my own business since 2000 and I have never had to close a single location so maybe or maybe not.
