Thanks to a reader for sending in this rumor from the Mt. Pleasant Forum.
Although one commenter rightly notes that:
“I saw this same story about Starbucks moving into Irving and MtP that apparently had no basis in reality.
I am also aware that John Andrade who has a bar called Meridian Pint wanted to put in an independent beer/wine store in that location:
So, pretty much “expressed interest” and $2 will get you a cup of coffee in this town, what’s the truth? ”
And my favorite commenter said:
“This would be such good news! A McDonalds would contribute SO much to the community, we would never have to worry about it selling or serving alcohol, and it would never even THINK about providing entertainment of any kind, live or otherwise! This would be such a feather in our cap, our community leaders should be proud they’ve created an atmosphere on Mt. Pleasant St. that attracts the attention of such high-quality businesses! What Mt. Pleasant needs, no, what Mt. Pleasant DESERVES, is more least-common-denominator businesses like McDonalds that have no character, no soul, and that nobody will ever protest, argue about, or make a fuss over!”
But just out of curiosity do you think a McDonalds would do well on Mt. Pleasant Street?
