Starbucks is one of the largest and most loved coffee chains in the United States of America. A survey found that nearly 37.8 million Americans visited a Starbucks over the last 30 days.
There is news from Starbucks that they are going to close 16 of their stores in these states by the end of this month due to safety concerns.
Most of these closing Starbucks stores are from the Greater Los Angeles and Seattle metro areas, which total 12 stores. The other four stores are from Portland, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C.
On July 11, Debbie Stroud and Denise Nelson, senior vice presidents of U.S. operations, published this letter to Starbucks partners in which the reasons mentioned are safety concerns such as rising drug use, a growing mental health crisis, racism, lack of access to healthcare, personal safety, and more.
