They don't like getting rob. That is why they are not in Bridgeport.

Better yet, why did Walmart pass over Bridgeport? Its because they knew that putting one there would be a license for larceny.

That and since there is ZERO private sector in Bridgeport, the taxes must be outrageous. But I would have to lean on the demographics. Scum bags that are poor, and get coffee from the local church when they have food....
Sort of like asking why there are no "Rolls Royce" dealers in the port

Hartford is creepin up on Bridgeport. Hartford had 7 shootings, 10 shot,2 Homcidies in 2 and half days. New Haven and Hartford cats getting ton of activities, Bridgeport thugs need to be more active and show then who run things

They don't need a Walmart in Bpt, they all come over to Stratford. Heck, they even have the intercom broadcasting the sales in Spanish and unfortunately I don't speak Spanish.

Gee, after I sent that through, I said to myself I hope they didn't think I was picking on a certain race..just that, I do see ALL kind of people crossing the parking lot without so much as checking to see if cars are coming, they just EXPECT you to slow down or stop for them. I tried that same tactic once and I swear I would have been struck down cuz THEY didn't slow down nor stop for me!!!

Why start a new business that will eventually be robbed by the blacks anyway. I mean that's just asking for trouble. Besides the coffee being too expensive for the clientel it's just another place for the local gang wanna-b's to hang out.

Starbucks is a fairly respectable place. Why on Earth would the want to open up in Bridgeport and have to deal with all the rude, smelly blacks?
