Jackson Metro Area Starbucks Closings

I guess that tells a story within a story, it looks like 4 out of 5 Starbucks within a 10 mile or so radius are closing in the Jackson Metro area. I have been living here for 11 years and I am still amazed at how this city stays alive. Of course in a lot of ways, it doesn’t.

I have 2 teenagers and their list of things to do just keeps shrinking almost daily. About the only thing that they have to do is go to the movies or go swimming at Ross Barnett Reservoir. So let’s see, go see a movie, or go swimming where there are alligators? What a choice.

And the reason? Well, from my perspective it is apathy. People here say they want this or that, but when it comes time to put their money (or time) where their mouth is, the buck stops.

It’s hard to believe this is a Capitol City when you can not even support a skating rink or a Starbucks.

Wake up Jackson !

  1. Unfortunately your right!!! We had a skating rink several years ago but it closed due to slow business. How sad that starbucks will not stay here.
