Starbucks is Coming to Town

Say it ain't so.

The Addison Independent reports that Myron Hunt (who, I might add, is a Middlebury alumnus, according to Michele Fay of Ripton) has proposed to build a Starbucks next to McDonald's on Route Seven, where the dilapidated car wash is now. You can read about it here:

Not a big fan of the run-down carwash, but I'm also not a fan of cookie-cutter, multi-million dollar conglomerates who suck the heart and soul out of the local economy.

Who do I love? I love Carol's Hungry Mind. Show your love to Carol's this weekend-- and everyday hereafter-- by buying their coffee beverages and yummy snacks and telling them that you won't stand for this Starbucks ridiculousness.

Definitely looking forward to Starbucks. Better selections, same prices.

Do away with Starbucks. There are plenty of local options for coffee drinkers.
