Sign alerting Star Market shoppers to an impending Starbucks

Roving UHub photographer Michael Piccirilli alerts us to the impending Starbucks at the Lower Mills Star Market, 4 River St., on the Mattapan line. Starbucks also recently opened a standalone union-organizing opportunity on the other side of Mattapan, at 850 River Street just over the line in Hyde Park.

If the Star Market Starbucks is like the one at the West Roxbury store, it will be more of a kiosk with a few tables than a full-fledged outlet.
