How long will a retailer stay in business if there are few paying customers?
Starbucks waters down their welcome
5-22-18, Starbucks now says, drugs and sleeping are NOT allowed. 'It sounds like Starbucks is turning their stores into homeless shelters,' Ron Raduechel, a 64-year-old retired supply chain executive from Waukesha, Wisconsin, told the Wall Street Journal, adding that they would no longer go to the coffee chain.
5-22-18, After Drawing Criticism, Starbucks Clarifies New 'Bathroom Policy' less than 48 hours after Starbucks revealed a new story policy that allows anyone to use a cafe’s facilities regardless if they make a purchase, the company clarified the policy. In a letter to its US employees: “any person who enters our spaces, including patios, cafes and restrooms, regardless of whether they make a purchase, is considered a customer.”
Some Starbucks employees are already tired of dealing with non-paying customers. An employee from Chicago said in they hate the new policy because the store bathrooms have turned into a hub for drug activity. “We haven’t been allowed to change our bathroom codes since April. So almost all the junkies and homeless people know the code now. About once a week we find needles, drug baggies, blood all over the toilet or walls.” the user wrote. More here
How long will it take for the homeless to camp out ...
4-17-18, We give out free coffee at our stores, and people come ... many homeless and riff raff aren't so much bad people [although they stink to high heaven]. They just don't look pleasant to be around; just find a seat away from them, bring some spray, put on some headphones or earmuffs and if they start talking to the person sitting across the table that isn't there ... well ignore it?
Manhattan Starbucks have become camp out centers for filthy homeless
4-22-18, Reddit -- I live on the Upper West Side of Manhattan; both of my nearest Starbucks seem to be the "go to" hangout for the neighborhoods homeless population. Extremely dirty and bad smelling people are allowed to loiter on the premises indefinitely. Shouldn't there at least be a standard of hygiene before entering a place where food and drink are served? Should someone be allowed to harass customers and pace around ranting insane things at people, putting their filthy hands all over the shared condiments? Why are these people allowed to loiter and harass customers without even being asked to leave?
