Starbucks Opens First Store in Ferguson

FERGUSON, Missouri (April 30, 2016)–Starbucks opened its first store today in Ferguson, Missouri, as part of a national outreach program to provide jobs to locals, create opportunities for the youth and revitalize the community in low to medium-income “diverse” communities.

The Seattle-based coffee chain will open at least 14 additional stores throughout the country by 2018 as part of this initiative, including in the Jamaica neighborhood of Queens, New York, and the Englewood neighborhood on Chicago‘s South Side.  MORE

  1. Starbucks can build a store anywhere they want. My only comment on them building in Ferguson would be:
    SUCKERS!

    My advice – build with fire resistant materials.

    The Starbucks in Ferguson Missouri was looted and burned to the ground by members of the local community because they were told the would have to pay for their coffee.

    Film at 11.00

  3. Hhahahaha, I think Starbucks coffee smells and tastes burnt, so there will be no difference before and after they burn it to the ground!

  4. Starbucks looking for more tax write-offs and insurance claims???? (BTW—it probably takes a libturd run insurance company to even insure Starbucks)

  5. Good for them.
    Put your money up to match your politics.

    I’m sure the goobers in Ferguson will embrace overspending for crap coffee …

    izlamo delenda est …

  6. are the aprons going to have level IIIa body armor?

    how about bullet proof glass in the storefront?

    The middle management at Starbucks can’t all be complete morons and SJW fools. This store will loose a shit-ton of money and won’t last longer than 3 years–at the most. I’d bet this store opening is some type of shakedown to avoid a boycott by Black Lives Matter or other fabricated movement

  7. I hope starbucks is planning to accept ebt cards because that’s the only way they’re going to make any sales…unless they start selling cannibus infused lattes.

  8. The Starbucks experience:
    Pour yerself a cup of coffee.
    Yell out yer name incorrectly.
    light a five dollar bill on fire!

    The Starbucks experience in Ferguson:
    Pour a cup of coffee.
    Yell out “Shaniqua”.
    Watch the whole city go up in flames!

    ROFLMAO

    Thanks Fink, That made my morning. :–)

  10. Starbucks changes its cup sizes in Ferguson to the more traditionally known Small, Medium, Large, and Michael Brown.

  11. Mercifully the Starbucks fad is on the wane.
    As they are running out of mainstream suckers they need to shift their marketing. The Hip Hop and Juggalo market may be just what they need to survive.

  12. Starbucks already has two (2) locations in the poorest Congressional district in the country (New York 15th, South Bronx).

    One, on East 161st Street, is located on a stretch of street that is almost all government agencies, so the civil-service foot traffic keeps it going. The other Is located in a large mall that is very busy because the neighborhood is starved for retail options.

    I can’t imagine what business plan told them that Ferguson was a good location.

  13. Remember the “Race Together” conversation starters that SB tried to foist on its customers?
    I wonder what that sounds like in Ferguson.

  14. You’d think if the progs caught wind that Starbucks cups aren’t recyclable because of the plastic liner they might boycott the place over environmental concerns. However, I bet they already know and turn the other cheek because Starbucks all the while huffing at your ICE car.

  15. “… to provide jobs to locals, create opportunities for the youth, and revitalize the community in low to medium income ‘diverse’ communities.” Ah, where to start?: 1) Ferguson isn’t diverse anymore 2) the community’s “vitality” left when the locals burnt it down; how does a coffee stand “revitalize” it anyway? 3) Starbucks is supposed to sell coffee and make a profit- the rest of this is just so much bullshit.

  16. No Vanilla Latte’s
    No white chocolate cookies

    Only one coffee recipe:
    If its brown its cooking if its black its done

  17. Czar of Defenestration, my thoughts exactly. Who is going to do the Ebonics-to-Starbuck’s translation for the baristas?

  18. I can’t take it any more. This much laughing on this subject must be against some social code, (if not some law).
    It’s a good thing a cup of their coffee costs an arm and a leg. Denizens (can I say that?) of Ferguson hopped up on caffeine doesn’t seem like a good idea.
