Eater SF says Starbucks in the Mission is pulling a "chameleon"
It's happening in Seattle and now they're trying to pull the wool over our eyes in San Francisco. Starbucks is busy remodeling and rebranding several stores in an effort to make them more neighborhood friendly and palatable to corporate xenophobes among us.
Now, as for me, I don't care. I love Starbucks. I want them to give me free iced tea and pastries for life. And I want one in my neighborhood. Unleash the 'Bucks! Gentrify all the awful areas of the city. Come the New Jerusalem!!
