Kefu and Dallas, just because there’s a Centra convenience store two doors up from the proposed Starbucks site doesn’t mean that the coffee chain should automatically get the go ahead to locate on Fosters Place. If anything, that’s a reason to stop it! This is a prime city-centre location and one which could be used for much more useful and fashionable purposes!
A bland, multinational coffee shop which has thousands and thousands of outlets all over the world is hardly going to add to the supposed high-quality retail mix which the Council is trying to achieve in the city centre! Trust me, in a few years’ time, Starbucks will probably have a store on every street in the country, just like Spar and Centra have now! That may be fine, but they shouldn’t be allowed do it in such important locations, right beside protected Georgian buildings.
