Starbucks Battle

Published by on Thursday, 12 June 2008No Comment

Over 70 people have been protesting outside the new Starbucks coffee shop in St. James’ Street. The firm failed to gain approval from the city council to trade in the old Sussex Stationers premises, but opened their doors anyway, which led many angry residents to take part in the protest. Starbucks have appealed the council decision. Ben Duncan, Green councillor for Queen’s Park, said: “People feel quite strongly about this for all sorts of reasons but predominantly they don’t like the idea that planning decisions should be ignored.”
