I predict that in 1929 there will be a stock market crash of historic proportions. Bank on it.

Set ridiculous prices get ridiculous results.


Oh but after you buy 50 drinks you get a free one!!!

So it validates their prices, including the $3 slice of banana bread. Lmao

Its not like I can get a $3 loaf of banana bread next door at the grocer bakery....oh wait, I can

Will the toilet's still be available?

Gotta use the toilet's!

They have to stay open for the toilets!



Great.


Now I have to pee.




Instead of locking the toilets in the "bad neighborhoods" they will just close Star Bucks there. Fixes everything...

Why do you always get all the important things wrong?

First off, I'm not a guy and not in a club....

Second off, I'm not a Democrat so we won't be going back to partisan politics and Russia at all.

I was just pointing out that your premise is flawed... it isn't inflation or the economy that is hurting Starbucks.

It is their business model and their corporate stance.

Feel free to prove me wrong and not just sulk and creep away again...

Supersaturation is certainly a concern along with local competition.

if they could afford it they would keep doing it trust me especially white and Asian women



My wife has a little saying for the situation.

There is a difference between what we can afford and what we will afford.

they probably lost their business to Amazon


Maybe. My wife (and I) use to go to Starbucks all the time (two times a day some times) ... but we pretty much stopped going the last few years; with our mornings losing time to taking the kids to school and no longer having 20 minutes to blow standing in line at Starbucks. But besides that we stop buying desert drinks from them too, which we did all the time, because the novelty has worn off. We do still buy Starbucks coffee to make at home from the supermarket... I'm sure you can get them on Amazon too. Thankfully we haven't been priced out of the Starbucks market, yet, but Starbucks has gotten to boring to pay a premium price for speciality coffee.

Now I know mine is just but one anecdote ... but as I said in your other thread I dont think this is a good case for your argument that people are being priced out of the market... it could just as easily be that people just dont like Starbucks as much as they use to and Starbucks' golden age has passed.

Now home remodeling, upkeep and renovation... that's a better place to find a case of people being priced out of the market. You cant get bord of fixing up and maintaining your house ... but anecdotally I see less and less people doing it.

$5 coffee is BS.

I go to 7-Eleven where there are usually deals, like scoring any size coffee plue ONE donut for $2.00, can't beat that.

I live in Washington state and Star Bucks is not the most favorite with the young crowd. Dutch Brothers and others are liked more.

Starbucks is the first thing cut when money starts getting tight... could be a bellweather for the economy? On the other hand, I have Keurig in my office, so I don't really hit up starbucks like I used to.

I never went to starbucks before this year because I thought it was too expensive. I was wrong. A regular coffee is actually cheaper than what I get at circle K and tastes better.

That is a regular coffee I am talking about not that tooty fruity mocha crapaloa stuff people put in their coffee to make it "Not Coffee".

I do like Nesspresso... makes better coffee. Love the froth. However, the pods aren't as readily available.
