The thread is not about Starbucks closing, but about how some cities don't have them. Indeed, the thread is somewhat old. My best guess it is entirely due to a demographic study pure and simple. Can Starbucks exist in certain towns. This is the final determination.

Going by state, the largest city in Oklahoma without a Starbucks is Muskogee (11th largest in the state with a population of 38,500).

Well, up here, there's still a line to the door for coffee each morning. So I'm unsure if people have given up their coffee addiction to starbucks yet...
"Up Here" in East Tennessee and Atlanta" ? ?

Crazy to see someone from Carrollton on here lol. Iím from the City of Atlanta but i currently am enrolled at UWG. If you include the Starbucks on campus plus the one inside of the gigantic Kroger plus the standalone one on South Park Street, that makes 3 for a town under 30,000 people.

I live in a small town in NC so we obviously don't have a Starbucks, but a town just 20 minutes north of me has one and a Barnes and Noble even though it's pretty small as well.

Why is this important and who cares? Well, I think Starbucks arriving in areas have typically been indicative of neighborhoods on the rise, and gentrification well under way or definitely coming.
Anyone know of larger cities than Bridgeport without a Starbucks? Bridgeport has about 140,000 people.
Blue Bottle, Intellegentsia and La Colombe are more indicative of this nowadays.....
