Not surprised.$4 for a gallon of gas, or $4 for an 8oz cup of coffee? Bad times for a lot of businesses.

On the Starbucks website there is a place to click about them closing 600 stores July 2008 thru the first part of 2009. On there they are only listing stores that are closing in that month. So the list for July is here.

http://www.starbucks.com/aboutus/pressdesc.as...

So, to be able to see Paris on THAT list you have to wait until the month they will close...from what I read.

I guess I should feel partly responsible. I have never stepped foot into the Paris Starbucks. But then I guess others didn't either or they wouldn't be on the list!

I think the construction in front of their area can be blamed. I'm not sure I believe that they're really closing though. I've heard the manager say something about a ten-year agreement for this area.

Don't think I will pay more for a cup of coffee than I will for a gallon of gas.

No brainer as to where I would cut back.

I don't see this town coming together to save a Starbucks.... look at all the other places that have come and gone.

you are quite right. paris doesn't support anything but catfish restaurants and smoke filled coffee shops. really, even the help in these places smoke behind the counter. if anything descent comes to town it's deemed as too "high faloutin'" and people can't run away from it fast enough. like the proverbial red lobster that's always going to open up here, will never be built. rl corporate has done its homework and realizes that if chicken fried steak and catfish aren't on the menu, paris won't support it.

You're right...unfortunately, that's part of the same reason why we will probably never have an Olive Garden or Red Lobster. Probably not enough people in this area would financially support them. I would, and many of my friends would, but that wouldn't be enough without a bigger "draw" than Paris is. I still think this area (Paris and surrounding areas) would be a good place for a Sam's. Maybe somewhere on 271?

Starbucks Corp. announced it will close 600 “underperforming” stores in the U.S, approximately 70 percent of which opened since the beginning of fiscal 2006.

The list includes 56 stores in Texas: Arlington 3 stores, Austin 2, Brownsville 1, Brownwood 1, Corpus Christi 2, Dallas 9, DeSoto 1, Duncanville 1, El Paso 1, Farmers Branch 1, Fort Worth 3, Frisco 2, Garland 1, Houston 8, Humble 1, Kingsville 1, Laredo 1, Mesquite 1, Mount Pleasant 1, Paris 1, Plainview 1, Plano 4, Red Oak 1, Rockport 1, Rosenberg 2, San Antonio 1, Victoria 1, Waco 1, White Settlement 1 and Wichita Falls 1.

California will have most closings, with 88. Next are Florida, with 59, and Texas with 56.

I dont see why anyone would pay $4 for coffee. As far as the Olive Garden and other places to eat, NO ONE thought Chilis or Applebees would make it either. It's not just the people in Paris that eat there, think of how many people come from OK.

On the bright side at least we still have Paris Coffee and my favorite Cozy in the Village! We are fortunate to have those local businesses! Some of those places may not have that! I do hate that the people who are working there and run it will be out of a job that is the sad part!

I wonder how long those other places will make it? I do not see how someone can spend that much money for coffee.
