Just to be clear, Locke St. was on its way up before the Starbuck's moved in. In fact - as the article clearly says - Starbuck's does a lot of market research and only move into areas with future potential. We have seen the short term effect of Starbuck's moving in being other businesses more comfortable opening up shop. However, the long term effect of the Starbuck's is yet to be seen. There will always be the chance that other big companies take interest in Locke St and start forcing the small businesses out. Fortunately though, the strong community values of people who live in the area should help prevent this from happening.
