For reasons I don’t quite understand — and which are probably an entire post of its own — colleagues and friends have been sending me updates over the last few weeks whenever the whiff of a Starbuck’s store closing is detected.
Operating under the assumption that they’re more clued in than me on matters of popular culture, I’m pleased to pass along the official Starbuck’s store closing list.
Twenty-six stores are closing in Minnesota. Ignore the fact the company spelled Minneapolis wrong.
The closings leaves Walgreen’s as the most overbuilt chain now.
