Great piece on Locke. It has become a great destination. I welcome Starbucks to this great West Ham. neighbourhood. There aren't a lot of US retailers, or Canadian ones for that matter, that are opening up in the lower city, so that alone makes me a fan. I personally prefer independent coffee shops, but I don't begrudge this corporation for their desire to make a profit. Besides, they seem to respect the look of the neighbourhoods in which they set up shop. They seem to be doing well, since it is hard to get a seat there most nights. I've noticed that the Mac students have even migrated over from Westdale, so they must be doing something right to get this normally immobile demographic!
