  • They had expanded too quickly, making the mistake of thinking that what worked in high income areas would work everywhere. It didn't. With many people having to cut back on discretionary spending, Starbucks sales are way down. Starbucks or gas for the car...let me see...which one will it be?

  • I think I heard about that on the news last week or the week before. It had something to do with the economy--everyone's cinching up their wallets, and Starbucks is starting to lose business.

  • Too many stores, not enough customers.
    There's one intersection in my town that has one on three of the four corners!

  • Their coffee is way way too expensive,no wonder they have to close down 600 stores.

  • They closed down to train their employees across the USA to serve coffee right.
