Some strange but interesting news for you here: Patrick Dempsey is battling Starbucks in a bidding war.
It looks like Starbucks doesn’t take a loss very well: Despite losing a bidding war with Grey’s Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey to buy Seattle coffee chain Tully’s, Starbucks plans to fight back with the bankruptcy court.
The Seattle Times reports on Starbucks‘ intent to file a claim with the bankruptcy court to prove its bids, along with AgriNurture’s bids, should be accepted over Dempsey’s bids. Dempsey’s final bid for Tully’s coffee stores was $9.15 million; together, Starbucks and AgriNurture (a wholesale retailer of fruits and veggies) made a combined bid of $10.56 million for Tully’s. According to sources, Starbucks wants Tully’s 25 Seattle storefronts — which could very easily become new Starbucks locations.
