Starbucks

Did anyone else hear that Starbuck's is apparently closing like 600 of their stores nationwide? Now I don't know about anyone else but what sad news. Where am I going to find my grande, nonfat, no water, 5-pump Chai Latte wherever I travel in the U.S. now? Luckily only one in the Des Moines area that I don't think I've even been to yet is closing. My frequent ones will remain open and will continue to serve me the best chai in all the land. Here's apparently a list of all the stores that are closing by the end of the year. http://www.starbucks.com/aboutus/pressdesc.asp?id=882

Hopefully your Starbucks near you won't be closing and you can still enjoy your favorite hot or cold $4.00 beverage.

Wow, it's kinda strange how fascinating I find this. I'm not a full Starbucks addict but the presence of them is comforting to me. Thanks for posting the list. I had fun perusing it. Luckily only one location is closing in my city - a mall that's kinda dying off.

But what will the people on the 5th floor of Macys in NYC do now??? :)

Maybe they'll have to go to the 8th floor now... =)

You know, they JUST opened one in my podunk hometown a few months ago but it's on the "to be closed" list. Boo! And you know what else? I think they cut down on some of their options as well! I went in to one the other day to get an almond latte (my fave) and they don't have almond flavoring anymore! And my sister in law tried to get a decaf mocha but they had to do it some different way b/c they don't have decaf mocha mix. Boooooo!!
