Community says, "Save our Starbucks!"
Who knew a chain coffee shop could cause such a fuss?
People in the St. Clair and Christie neighbourhood are doing everything they can to save their local Starbucks from closing.
They've even started a petition, addressed directly to the President of Starbucks Canada. It has more than 400 signatures.
The petition calls the store an important hub for the community where people, "gather to share great coffee and deepen human connection."
Even the local councillor is on board.
I’m happy to share this. Not only do I agree with you, but I personally signed your petition this morning :)— Josh Matlow (@JoshMatlow) July 4, 2019
The store is slated to close at the end of August.
