Want to know fear?

I put in my address, asking it to show me the Starbucks within a 5 mile radius. It came back with 97 stores.

97 stores within five miles?!?!?! Just how much over saturation is needed?

We have 52! Only 11 in a 2 mile radius though.

How many Peets do you have?

HA! We've got 11!

When I do a search for "All locations" for Peet's within 10 miles, I end up with a staggering 113. o_O

All locations also returns all the grocery stores that happen to sell Peet's coffee, so that kind of makes sense.

we had some seattle guys down here awhile ago. one was mentioning that, due to living in seattle, aka the most caffeinated city IN THE UNIVERSE, he has about 40 bajillion starbucks [starbuckses?] within 2 miles of his place. ok, not actually 40 bajillion; he gave an exact number that was OBSCENELY high, but i dont remember what it actually was. anyway, the disgusting part was not merely the sheer number, but the fact that apparently every morning EVERY SINGLE ONE has a line out the door. often around the store.

yeah.

enjoy seattle. i bet it smells gooooooood. :p

5 mile radius - ZERO
10 mile radius - ZERO
20 mile radius - ZERO
50 mile radius - ZERO

So who wants to rent a room in my house? $100/month and no Starbucks for more than 50 miles!
