Make Way: Starbucks enters Sedro-Woolley

With a new Starbucks being built in our town, Students at Sedro-Woolley High School have strong feelings, according to a poll sent out to all grades.

Each grade was asked to answer; the consensus was that they don’t want a Starbucks.

“I like Starbucks. However, I think we have like eight local coffee stands,” reads one response to the poll. “I don’t like taking away business from a small business with large corporations.”

Another response mentioned the amount of coffee stands, “I don’t think that Sedro-Woolley should have a Starbucks because we already have our local coffee stands, and if we brought in a major coffee company, like Starbucks, it could threaten to close those shops down.”
SWHS ninth grader Savanna Massingale thinks a new Starbucks would be great.

“It doesn’t matter, but it’s nice to have more choices of drinks and places to go if your main place is packed.”

If you don’t have much money and want Starbucks then, “having a Starbucks in town would save people a lot of money on gas.”

Ultimately, the consumer has the power. If you don’t want a Starbucks in Sedro-Woolley, then don’t go there.
