It's been a long while since I've talked about MyStarbucksIdea.com in any way whatsoever. I noticed a few idea-threads that struck me as interesting, and decided to highlight them here. Here we go:
Daly City Starbucks Closing - Please Save Our Store - This idea thread is about a store in Daly City, California, which apparently is closing on January 26, 2012. When I saw this thread, my interest was immediately piqued, as I wondered which Daly City Starbucks, and wondered if there was a story behind this. I didn't realize that Starbucks is still closing stores, though I suppose if a store is not profitable, that could always happen. Still, I wonder if any of my readers have more information about why this Starbucks is closing? Does anyone here have more information on this?
Here's the full "idea" from MyStarbucksIdea.com:
Bring Back Organic Shade Grown Mexico - Here's someone who wants the whole bean coffee Organic Shade Grown Mexico to come back. I have to admit, I really liked that coffee too, and so I want to highlight this thread. I don't think it's coming back, but I can still wish... Now is a good time to mention an old blog post about Shared Planet, which talks about the early history of Organic Shade Grown Mexico coffee. Still, as a fan of this coffee, I want to put a spotlight on this thread.
Why buck the buck at the bux? - You can't really tell what this thread is about by looking at the title. It appears to be that a customer wanted to use a coupon for a $1.00 off of whole bean or Via and was told that they could not do so at the company-operated Starbucks. Given the mix of answers in the thread, I find it a bit confusing. As far as I know, the $1.00 off whole bean (or Via Ready Brew) coupons may be used at all "participating Starbucks," which generally does include all company-operated stores.
Here's the idea thread:
4) Graham Cracker Topping and Cheesecake Syrup - Here's a partner who wants a cheesecake syrup and graham cracker topping for beverages. It doesn't really appeal to me, but someone would like it. It's interesting enough to point out here - That's an original idea!
