Redux In the Richmond, Part II: Starbucks Out Again

Posted By on Thu, Jan 24, 2008 at 9:00 AM

Well, that didn't take long: Last week behemoth java-slingers Starbucks was found to have wiggled its way into the Richmond with an under-the-radar Safeway kiosk, despite last year's smackdown by the Board of Supervisors. But word comes today that the chain has indeed shuttered its newly-revealed location "following complaints to The City from shoppers and neighborhood residents." Safeway sent a letter to customers Tuesday explaining that they had not applied for a permit to open the kiosk.
