Though ordinary from outside, this newer Kansas store, besides sporting a newer design concept, is one of the first I can remember seeing with (corporate) artwork and decorative tile in the bathroom.

After all the interviews I've given during which I profess that all Starbucks do not look alike, I've been paying closer attention to their unique elements. In this case, everything looks standard except for the way that a corporate painting is framed by an entire section of wall.

Missouri now boasts stores in Independence and Liberty, but, alas, there is no Justice.

St. Joe - Belt Highway & Cook Road, St. Joseph, Missouri

St. Joseph is along the historic Pony Express route, and this store honors that history with three displays, a map of the route, a poster advertising for "wiry" fellows to ride, and a bird's eye view map of the town.
