Well much as I was sceptical, it really has happened. And it’s great.
So what’s to be made of yet another Costa, this time being created just inside Debenhams in The Oracle. About 100 yards along the mall is another Costa. A hundred yards further, there’s another on Coffee Corner along with two competitors. Go the same distance the other way and there’s another Starbucks.
You can’t blame an industry where mark up is everything and where the demand just doesn’t seem to stop, for making the most of it.
But its seems they are going to fill the town with them until there just isn’t any more demand they can squeeze out of the locals.
And I’d guess there is still a way to go.
