MSNBC says that Starbucks has announced that it will be closing 600 locations in the US and could eliminate up to 12,000 full and part-time jobs. Previously, the company had announced that it would close only 100 stores.
Reader gibson, who sent in the tip says:
Considering that there are THIRTY-TWO Starbucks within TWO miles of my house, this news seems inevitable. Seriously, 32 Starbucks within a 2 mile radius?! …Welcome to Portland, Oregon!
You know, people say the roaches and rats in New York are bad— but since I moved here I’ve seen more Starbucks locations than both of them combined, and I take the subway.
