Is my Starbucks closing?

I've heard a lot of people asking this since the January 29 announcement that Starbucks would be closing 200 stores here in the United States. I found this info today on the company's website.

    Statement regarding recent additional store closures announcement

    As part of an ongoing, rigorous evaluation of our global store portfolio, Starbucks announced plans to close approximately 300 additional under-performing company-operated stores in the U.S. and international markets. Approximately 200 of those stores are in the U.S. with the remainder in international markets. We do not at this time have specific details about locations of stores that may be impacted by these announcements. A list will be available once it has been finalized and once all impacted partners have been notified.
