Multinational corporations have no place in our rural town-- where the residents depend and rely on locally owned businesses. The opening of a Starbucks in Mount Shasta opens the door to further undue development. Mount Shasta will lose its essence, making it hardly distinguishable from a chaotic and bustling commercial city.

These charming small touristy towns start to lose their character when commercialization starts to rear its ugly head. From what I gather, it’s city revenue it will create is only about 10,000.00 per annum; Even lower than that if it causes a decrease of revenue from the other existing coffee shops already struggling due to Covid. Even if I didn’t have a coffee shop right across the street I still would not like to see a Starbucks come here.

And from what I’ve gathered the general consensus already is most people don’t want to see it here either.

Help our small town values be kept-- and support our local business; Especially during this pandemic.
