I just looked at the closing list for Starbucks. El Paso is losing just one location (9615 Montana), but all the others will remain open. Lubbock will not see closures, nor will Amarillo. Austin will close two, San Antonio, one, and D/FW and Houston will lose several. You El Pasoans have nothing to worry about.

You know I've been to Starbucks in El Paso, VA, CA, DC, Singapore, Japan, & Jakarta & they're not bad & all taste the same. But the other day here in Jakarta I went to Dunkin Donuts & their lattes are WAY better than Starbucks. I agree w/ the person that said Starbucks is overrated. I'm switching to D.Donuts.

Thanks!

Although, I do have to say, as a native New Yorker, I don't generally think of Miss or Fla as the 'East Coast'

I know they are big out that way.. and up along the East coast, I was just saying where I saw them mostly.

I apologize they are a New Orleans establishment. That maybe why I see them all over the Southern Gulf coast region.
