Starbuck’s value meal?
Here’s another interesting article for you guys! Apparently, with the economy the way it is, Starbuck’s has received quite the decline in sales. More and more people cannot afford their latte habit any longer and are going to cheaper chains like McDonald’s and Dunkin Donuts to get their caffeine fix.

What do you guys think about this? Are you still spending more on Starbucks or have you cut back to save money? If the company were to come up with a “value meal” for customers, would you consider it?
I was sort of tickled when the final quote of the article was from someone from my hometown! She said she is willing to pay extra for a good cup of joe. I also agree with her; I too was not impressed with the McDonald’s mocha I had a while back.
