Actually because of the commentary on rth when Starbucks moved in, I changed my position on the company. I don't believe their intentions, or their coffee are any better, but do believe that in some cases their effect on a district is overall positive. I know people who only go to Starbucks now that it's on Locke St, whereas beforehand they didn't go to the area at all. Most people I know however have always bought from the independents and continue to do so. This is just anecdotal evidence but it supports the theory that Ryan brought up.
