We got plenty of competion, local mom+pop, Pete's, even McDonald got coffee tastier and cheaper in a rural small city.
Harlem NY got a few Starbucks with mediocre rating, not sure how to correlate ** with price value vs ***** .....
May be Z tries to buy Starbuck after selling off AR.....

In Grand Haven, Michigan we have quite a few local coffee shops - Jumpin Java, Coffee Grounds, even Biggby Coffee, a local Michigan chain. Many folks in Grand Haven value local businesses over large chains so I wouldn't forsee the value of homes dipping on account of Starbucks leaving.

Jack Lewitz It would be business as usual. No great loss as far as I am concerned.
As The big S is inconvenient here and there are better coffee houses probably nothing!
Nothing at all.
The addicts would drive a few minutes more to the next 'Bucks' or Panera or DD or McD's or Perkins or JavaJoe's or Seattle Coffee.....
I will admit, when showing homes to out of area buyers, they do ask, "Where is the nearest Starbucks?" When you squeeze, what they are really asking is 'Can a walk to a coffee shop?" STARBUCKs is becoming legend.
funny.... we are just getting our first starbucks NOW.... never said we were first off the blocks, but we DO have a growing community.... Starbucks sees the potential...
Nothing would happen other than some habits would have to change. There are plenty of alternatives with even better coffee.
The traffic jams at various intersections would die down.
Good morning Jack. Since I don't drink coffee, not much for me, but would miss my hot chocolate at Dunkin Donut.
Unfortunately, Dunkin would probably take over the space. Actually, come to think of it, a local Starbucks actually did close down and a Peets Coffee moved in.
I don't think we would actually notice if it went out of business
The world would keep turning.
The local mom n pop coffee shops would thrive.
Nothing at all. I think that's the tail wagging the dog. Starbucks builds where the demographic can make them money
We don't have a Starbucks in the neighborhood but there are 3 in town. If one went out of business the others would pick up the slack or one of the other coffee shops or Panera would fill the gap.
I've only had 1 cup of coffee at a Starbucks. Impact on Naples and or my neighborhood? Nothing at all.
I personally don't think there will be ny change. We have a lot of coffe places here.
I hope it happens Jack, I like the little guy.
Ha! We'd be fine! There would be more mom and pop coffee houses like there used to be.
I'm not so sure that Starbucks drives that vs Starbucks searches for better neighborhoods. Regardless, if they went out of business, another higher end coffee shop would fill it's place.
We have another high end coffee place that is in 4 or 5 of our upscale towns.
They may calm down a little.
As there is no Starbucks that is walkable from where I am I will say nothing. But in those areas where there is one I like to think that the market will correct itself and ther coffee shops will pick up the slack and nothing will change. It's a non-factor usually.
Not sure, a bunch of angry people?? We have a great coffee shop here on the Island called Island Joe's. I think we would be fine - the town is small enough. I guess I am saying we would adapt - just like we did when we lost Krispy Creme Donuts :(
No Starbucks in my town. They are missing a good bet...
I am sure that I not alone in this but I am certainly in the minority. My first Starbuck's experience almost two decades ago was an unplanned stop at a rest area. I was tired and needed a pick me up. My first reaction YUCK! However, it certainly woke me up. I guess my palate was ruined by all of those years of Dunkin' Donuts. Up until 5 years ago I had never even tried a flavored coffee. I have returned to Starbucks about 3 times in the last two decades. So, to make a long answer even longer.......My neighborhood would survive if Starbucks went out of business.
My neighborhood did very well for years without any Starbucks, so I'm sure it would survive if Starbucks disappeared. There's always something/someone who will fill the vacuum (maybe even better than Starbucks).
I do not think it will affect my neighborhood.
We don't have one near us. Java Kai is our coffe magnet here.
We don't have a Starbucks in my town!
