Controversial Jean-Talon Starbucks Shuts Down

The Jean-Talon Market Starbucks store that thousands of people petitioned against has closed its doors.

Back in 2015, plans for a Starbucks on the corner of Casgrain and Jean-Talon aggravated Little Italy residents. A petition was launched, garnering over 9,000 signatures against the Seattle coffee giant’s planned location, calling it “a threat to the Little Italy landscape”.

Citizens behind the petition argued that the arrival of such a chain ran contrary to the mission of the large market, operated by Montreal’s public market authority (MPM).
