You know I love my Starbucks, so let’s be real…the recent announcement by Starbucks about an average 1% increase in prices in certain areas of the U.S. really isn’t going to dampen the spirits of those who frequent the shops. Let’s consider that the 10 extra cents one will have to shell out for their grande soy peppermint white mocha won’t add up to a dollar until 10 drinks later. By 10 drinks later that individual will have spent over $50 in total for all drinks. So how about you make this rise in prices a big issue when a middle class wallet can really feel the pinch…ok.
