A Dream Come True?

Wed, Feb 25, 2009


At last it has arrived.  Mansfield finally has a coffee establishment that begins with ‘Star’ and ends with ‘B**ks’.  I knew it would only be a matter of time, what with having a double Olympic Gold Medal Winner, and a visit to our local college from Prince Charles himself this week. 


Next we’ll be getting a Borders.

    You mean a Boarders – like, a place to stay, or a place that sells wood?! Haha
    I said wood. Oh nice.

    Coffee teases.
    Good luck with that, Jo.

    Oh, that must be one of the three that recently pulled up stakes in Charlotte recently…I wondered what had happened…enjoy!

    LOL .. I want to ask about the ‘themed events’ …


  5. SingleParentDad Says:

    Can’t believe they can knock out a skinny-caffe-latte-mocha-choca for 40p, and still include a biscuit.


  6. Rosie Scribble Says:

    Jo, the giveaway is “Tea, coffe and Biscuits 40p” – definately NOT Starbucks!!!


  7. WT Says:

    Stand firm, if you ignore them they will go away. It worked here, they closed all their outlets in regional Australia due to poor sales.


  8. WT Says:

    Speaking of coffee, I love that I no longer have to go and make one while I wait for my comment to post ;)


  9. ZERILDA Says:

    You KNOW it isn’t Starbucks (bob bless them) because the food is priced in pence. 40p in Starbucks gets you a seat. MAYBE.

    AWAITING MODERATION?!?!?! My comment is awaiting moderation?!?! MISS BEAUFOIX I DO PROTEST!

    Am I the only person in the world who doesn’t like coffee?
    I remember them opening a SB’s in the city where I worked and a couple of people in the office were freaking out like they’d just announced Take That were sitting on a park bench there.
    Now THAT I could get excited about.

    Sybil, you are mad, but I love you. Mwah.

    Mie, I want to go to a themed event.

    Sandi, ahhh thanks. You sent one to me. Sighhhhh.

    Daryl, I know. You and me and Holl and Lee, dressed as cowgirls. Oh ‘twould be fabulous.

    Kim that’s what I said. ;D

    WT, they would never last in my home town. I mean why would you go to a Starbucks when you could go to a Star Books??

    Zerilda, welcome gorgeous. And in my town, 40p almost gets you a house. ;D
    And you are now thoroughly approved of.

    Tara, me too. I like Starbucks for a treat, and especially if it’s in a book shop. Sighhhhh. They should actually call those ones star books maybe. Or maybe not. ;D
