the 15th coffee wars end unexpectedly

Remember when people were up in arms about Ladro moving in on “neighborhood creating” Victrola way back around the turn of the century [stranger]? Well, I think we all know how that turned out: it’s 2008 and both appear to be thriving. Until today I would have continued that sentence with “… in seeming harmony with a Starbucks just a block away.”

Now, however, we learn that the 15th Avenue Starbucks, one of the city’s oldest, is among the seven Seattle stores on the chopping block [#]. Let the vigils begin. [capitolhillseatle]
