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.
