Top ten reasons this is our “Third Place”

Posted by starbucks on 18 Jul 2008 | Tagged as: Campaign News

1. For the last nine years it has been a meeting place for neighbors, professionals, artists, musicians, authors, parents, politicians, doctors, engineers, architects, writers, news reporters, freelancers, baristas, tattoo artists, students, realtors, and many many more.
2. Everyone knows your name, not just the baristas.
3. Parents bring their children and use art supplies from the art closet for a sanity break.
4. Neighborhood residents walk here often with their dogs.
5. Local artists hang their art here.
6.  Authors work on their novels and books at this store.
7. Our baristas not only make great coffee but take a personal interest in our lives.
8. Free advice on business, strategy, marketing, sales, tech support, relationships and any thing else you need help on.
9.  Discuss current events with your friends.
11. It’s a social gathering place that’s not a bar.¬†

    Your particular starbucks is better than the one by my house in West Village. WEst Village starbucks is more of a runway show in NY thatn it is a coffee shop.

    What I love about yours is that people are open to interaction. I have had some great conversations there with really awesome people.

    The people at your Starbucks have included me in their lives by inviting me to their events.

    I would hate to see Starbucks split that all up.

    It is not only my third place, but my fourth, my fifth and my sixth.
    My Third Place - a nice way to start my day by seeing the baristas at the workday regulars
    My Fourth Place - a place to work when my home office gets too quiet and boring
    My Fifth Place - a way for my two year old daughter and I to spend time together as this is a weekly treat for before she goes to school
    My Sixth Place - as a family, we walk to MY place to spend the morning together and be with other memebers of the community

    I love this Starbucks! I was so sad to hear that it was closing. I often walk up to the Greenville Starbucks on the weekends with my dog. And I make a pit stop there on my way to work each day. The baristas are friendly, they always remember my order. I’m so sad to see it go. Hopefully, the national office will realize what an asset this store is to our community.

    I get to meet cool mommies who can commiserate with me and give me ideas and info about community activities, schools and where to have a glass of wine with the girls.
