The Starbucks in downtown Newark is set to close as a result of a cost-cutting initiative at the beleaguered coffee chain. Newarkers have been emailing asking if anything can be done.
In a brief one-liner, I asked Mayor Booker on WBGO if he plans to intervene in the closing. He noted that the would try, but that a local Newark businessman has offered to step in and launch a new coffeeshop at the Starbucks site.
With just a couple of weeks to go before the closure, what do you think? Should Newark save Starbucks?
