The two photos below were taken standing in the exact same spot by simply turning around 180 degrees. Yes, there are two Starbucks coffee shops that close - less than a block away from each other. This is the problem with Starbucks - they are everywhere! We have a nice outdoor mall a few miles away from us that contains FOUR separate Starbucks locations within less than a mile (from nearest to farthest) of each other. It is quite absurd. There is a great bit in a Simpsons cartoon where their entire city is more or less taken over by Starbucks and every single shop has their original signs taken down and a Starbucks sign hung in its place within a matter of seconds. Alas, sometimes cartoons are not too far from the truth!
