Interesting how 10 years can change the presence of a company. People used to say Starbucks are everywhere, it is even truer now, even after their contraction in the late 2000's. I know that Peoria, IL has at least 4 locations, with 3 in the city of Peoria and 1 in East Peoria. My fair blue-collar farm community of 100k has SIX Starbucks, including one inside a grocery store that is less than 1/4 of a mile from a stand-alone Starbucks. :not:
I'm surprised Starbucks has been able to make inroads in so many blue-collar areas.
That's why its called Scarbucks, no?
