New Starbucks policy: No purchase needed to sit in cafes

Quote:
Starbucks announced a new policy Saturday that allows anyone to sit in its cafes or use its restrooms, even if they don't buy anything.

The new policy comes five weeks after two black men who hadn't bought anything were arrested at a Philadelphia Starbucks.

Can't wait for the homeless to camp out at Starbucks and chase the paying customers out.




Gotta love liberal virtue signaling nonsense.

They'll be beat to the seats by the ones that want this to happen, loading up on burritoes and going in to use the restrooms. Should get quite a competition going.

Sounds like Starbucks has adjusted policy so that they now offer free services for anyone wanting to use their space for most any purpose. No need to rent the local grange for baby showers etc., just go to Starbucks.

How long will it be before the customers of Starbucks make it clear that they do not want to share their space with people who aimlessly wonder in off the street to use the facilities?

WHICH POLICY WILL DRIVE MORE CUSTOMERS AWAY? NOT ALLOWING NON PAYING PEOPLE TO OVERRUN THE FACILITY, OR ALLOWING THEIR STORES TO BE EXTENDED PUBLIC REST AREAS AND CONFERENCE CENTERS TO THE ANNOYANCE OF THE REAL CUSTOMER?

There's 2 homeless guys that seem to alternate each day sitting outside the starbucks around the corner from me. I'll make sure to tell them they are allowed to sit inside now. It's getting hot outside during the day.

I go to the one in the Atrium Downtown. Thankfully, they donít have public restrooms in the store.

Funny that it takes the homeless to scare people off rather than the $6 coffees.

This should help decrease the homeless crowd at the public libraries.

I don’t go downtown. I prefer joes in the square.

Only if Starbucks can also provide the free coffee, newspapers, and computer access.

Is that the one on 6th? I rarely ever go inside, usually just to buy the homeless guys a bite to eat as I'm walking the dogs. You'll be seeing them inside from now on.
