A Good Thing?

Starbucks coming, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

I spotted this sign in Columbia Heights touting a Starbucks on the way. It got me thinking about Petworth. When I first moved to Petworth, I thought, gosh it would be fanastic to have a Starbucks of our own. Now, I am begining to wonder. I had the opportunity to speak to the owner of ‘Blessed 7-9’ on the corner of Shepherd and 5th. I posted a photo of his new sign a few posts below. At anyrate he was a really super nice guy. I asked him if he could stock 2% milk and without hesitating he said “yeah, no problem”. Then I told him I liked his new sign and he was thrilled. He insisted that I try a cup of his coffee. And I have to tell you, it was delicious. I thought it was going to be horrible and stale but I couldn’t have been more wrong. It was fantastic and only $1.25. Which brings me back to Starbucks. It would be a shame if we got a Starbucks and it hurt our very hard working local business people. It is a debate I’m having. Would it hurt Domku? So what are your thoughts – would you like to see a Starbucks in Petworth?
