The revamped Northfield Target store will include a Starbucks coffeeshop (Nfld News article here, Nfld Patch article here). They plan to sell a lot of coffee, evidently, because earlier this week, oceangoing containers filled with coffee arrived in the north parking lot. Jeesh.

    You realize these are “lay-down” containers, right? Stuff goes there while re-sets are done on shelves inside. That way the shopping environment has minimal construction mayhem.

    If they were full of corporate coffee I would have already heard rumblings of 18 wheelers coming to “borrow” them.

  2. I know it undermines the minimal amount of “townie” creed I’ve working to build in the last 12 months, but I will be interested in drinking oceangoing containers worth of Starbucks coffee should it become available.
