Carpe CARP

There’s a new Caribou Coffee in town, just opened this week in the old depot downtown, and they’ve been tossing out Red Wing’s “little paper that does” and one thing we all know about the CARP is you can’t throw it back!


Here’s the missive that appeared at CARP HQ:

… sigh… It’s presumptive and dismissive — no information was provided about the parameters of their policy, no contact information for the corporate decision-maker. Now, that’s not very good PR for the new biz in town, eh? Here we all are, trying to save the Caribou in ANWR, and they demonstrate no gratitude whatsoever when they come to our home? I have a few ideas… oh-oh… who’s their corporate counsel???
