This film, narrated by Louis Louzou, tells the story of the unlawful St James's Street Starbucks up to the public inquiry into its future that took place at Brighton Town hall earlier this month. I'll post on that in a few days: meanwhile, two facts to remember:
1. The inquiry will announce it's result in September. It's rumoured though that the chain has secured an option to lease the former John's Camping shop on the other side of the street - and will simply move over the road and start the whole process again if they lose.
2. This film contains the startling revelation that the nearby Cherry Tree Deli and Cafe has suffered an 18% drop in coffee sales since Starbucks opened its doors - so the impact on the local community is already being felt, and hard.
