Well, the Market House had the look and atmosphere of a general goods store, where kids could buy penny candies and bring home basic items to their homes. With party phone lines and an old heated stove to keep warm on the cold days.
I purchased a set of silverware there and other kitchen related items. With a few registers, lines would often form and one had to wait to purchase something.
The change-over to Starbucks may change the atmosphere there. I think it will be more profitable as Starbucks is a popular selling brand.
I personally do not drink coffee or tea so I may not frequent the store much. I may look around out of curiosity from time to time.
It's kind of ironic that Walt wanted coffee available at a low price, wasn't it twenty five cents for bottomless coffee? I could be wrong there but, it was to be affordable. I think the opposite will be true now.
I'm wondering if the party lines will be changed to incorporate references to coffee. That will be interesting to check out. I was hoping that the stove would be retained. With the checker board pushed up against the wall, that doesn't seem to be the case. So, it seems some of the charm of the original store may be lost.
The addition of the book nook appeals to me and looks like a nice area to rest those weary legs a bit.
The focus is on coffee now at the Market House.
