I really can't think of anything to say to a person who considers Starbucks an "experience". Okay, maybe I'll just chime in with the other people who note that there are an almost ridiculous number of locally-owned coffee shops within a 10-minute walk of Starbucks.

This Saturday is Small Business Saturday, but you don't have to wait until then to go to a local coffee shop if you're that upset with Starbucks.

Bar Nine is a few blocks away on Erie, and Dames a few blocks from there. If you're that hell bent on Satrbucks, there's one in the Newport Center and another at Target, or you can just buy some coffee and burn it at home for that signature Starbucks taste.

That Starbucks was overrun by the homeless and "office-less" long ago. It was bound to happen, given its location. The place may be overrun but management probably doesn't care, given the steady stream of customers at the register.

Given the numerous other places not too much further from the PATH that I can get a coffee and sit down, I voted with my feet (literally, by walking just a little further). You might as well do the same.

Assuming Starbucks management is reading this thread (tenuous assumption, but I'll go with it). Lots of cafes allow customers to buy coffee "on suspension" for someone else. Someone who would like a cup of coffee but can't purchase it can ask if the cafe has any on suspension, and they can get it for free.

I LOVE this! TeaNJ does this on Newark Ave. according to the website noted above. Only two other NJ shops are listed.

When does it end ? The only thing you accomplish by buying someone a cup of coffee is that they get it for free and Starbucks makes a profit.


A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves.

Starbucks is a "progressive" company.

"Progressives" are all about letting the homeless do things like this. Sorry buddy, you knew what you were getting into by patronizing this company. You're not going to win this, and don't deserve to.

I think it's pretty annoying to have anyone take up a seat at Starbucks for over an hour (homeless or not). But hey, management isn't blind - if it's happening right in front of them, they're okay with it.

So what can you do other than go elsehwere?

there are some other great coffee places in dojo. I'm sure they would appreciate it patronage too.

Wow you sound like a coldhearted cun*. Why don't you take your freaking coffee and go back to your nice warm house, car or office, and have a little empathy for those that have no place to go asshat. Lots of Starbucks around the country have started removing the chairs to discourage everyone, even people who have the money to pay for coffee and have a home to not sit and stay for so long.

Some years back, there was a thread here about some people losing their shit over Wonder Bagels and their "house cat". To me, that thread was emblematic of the most common stereotype of gentrifiers and newcomers: they come into new areas for the "authenticity" and "old school feel" and promptly go about changing all of that by expecting/demanding/supporting new businesses that eventually muscle out the "old school", "authentic" places that were their original reason to relocate to the neighborhood. I do like it when I walk into an establishment and there is a house cat, which are often old and mostly cranky.

How about you get your own damn office and pay for your own internet somewhere else? I'm glad they don't kick out homeless people.

I always thought Starbucks was for young progressives. You would think they would show some compassion and not look down upon the homeless?right?

Interesting piece...

Houston Chronicle: Who Is Starbucks' Target Audience?
by Renee O'Farrell

Adults
Starbucks? primary target market is men and women aged 25 to 40. They account for almost half (49 percent) of its total business. Starbucks? appeal to this consumer age group through hip, contemporary design that is consistent in its advertising and decor, and working to keep its products current as status symbols. Customers tend to be urbanites with relatively high income, professional careers and a focus on social welfare. This target audience grows at a rate of 3 percent annually.

Young Adults
Young adults, aged 18 to 24, total 40 percent of Starbucks? sales. Starbucks positions itself as a place college students can hang out, study, write term papers and meet people. Starbucks appeals to this consumer directly through introducing technology as soon as it comes available, focusing on social networking and actively cultivating a ?cool? image. The young adult audience grows 4.6 percent each year.

Kids and Teens
Kids and teens are also a large part of Starbucks? target audience. Together, customers age 13 to 17 account for just 2 percent of Starbucks? sales, but most items for kids are purchased by the parents. Whether the focus is on the steamed milk that Starbucks? baristas refer to as ?babyccinos? or the sugary, caffeinated, whipped cream topped coffee drinks that are so popular with teenagers, kids and teens form a large part of Starbucks business. Kids go there with their parents; both mother and child leave with cup in hand. Teens meanwhile use Starbucks as a place to hang out with friends or study. Starbucks may not cater directly to kids (and risk criticism about the high calorie and caffeine content of some of its drinks) but it does make its products kid-friendly, offering special child sizes for instance

It's really a bad situation when "4 Bucks" coffee is taken over and you can't sip your choco swirl caramel latte while hogging their free wifi and counter space.

"Are you an employee there narking on your manager?
NO, I AM A CUSTOMER THAT FREQUENTS STARBUCKS' WHILE TRAVELING THE WORLD FOR WORK. A SAFE PLACE AND A TRUE EXPERIENCE, WHICH WAS THE MISSION OF GORDON BOWKER AND JERRY BALDWIN IN 1968.

I get you're passionate about the whole "Starbuck's Experience" (which sounds very corporate internal training manual to me), but you're coming across as having no compassion for others in your community. The homeless are having an experience, too - it's called getting warm.
STARBUCKS IS NOT A HOMELESS SHELTER FOR THE HOMELESS TO STAY WARM? THAT IS WHY JC HAVE HOMELESS SHELTERS !!! THE PROBLEM WITH THIS COUNTRY IS A SENSE OF ENTITLEMENT !!! SAD SAD SAD...EVERYONE CAN WORK IF THEY WANTED...NO?

Are you an employee there narking on your manager? You sound like the O/P on another old Starbucks thread that was complaining about the site manager.

It is like this throughout the country, if you share the CEO's political beliefs you should take it and not be a hypocrite. If you are on the other side, why support this progressive when there are so many other options available?

Ohhhhh.... this is going to be a fun thread! I have no sympathy for Starbucks... I stopped drinking their product when the CEO started to encourage a political dialogue between the Baristas and the customers.

Please just give me my Dunkin Donuts coffee and let's leave with a smiles and a thank-yous.
