Yesterday Starbucks said it is going to close 600 stores around the country. There are at least 10 in Richmond. Click here for a map.
The company said it will close relatively new stores that have only been open since the beginning of fiscal 2006. Starbucks identified stores that were either not profitable or not projected to provide strong returns in the future.
Which ones seem slowest when you go in to get your fix? Any guesses which ones in Richmond might close? Plus, is this good for the locally-owned shops or is a harbinger of the coffee biz?
