Oh Gloria Jeans

Starbucks is closing down most of its Australian stores. This is not overly newsworthy, although I will miss the chocolate frappucinos. They are awesome.

However in this article the manager of one of the Gloria Jeans stores says that

he did not expect his business to benefit from the closure of the nearby Starbucks because the customers who went there were “not interested in real coffee anyway”.


this STILL cracks me up. To my non Australian readers, Gloria Jeans is an Australian owned equivalent to Starbucks. Their coffee stinks. They have ok iced chocolates, but these don’t compare to a chocolate frappucino from Starbucks, they’re not even on the same scale.

Gloria Jeans also have a close relationship with Hillsong. And they donate money to Mercy Ministries, for “troubled” girls. yuck. Counting down til THAT chain has to close down.
