This is your friendly reminder that Starbucks will be closing 8000 US stores on Tuesday, May 29th for employee racial-bias training:
This means a couple of things….
- 8000 stores and 175,000 employees will NOT be serving coffee.
- Retail consumption measurement numbers will be skewed for May, including Memorial day promotions will be off based on year ago data.
- “Work-from-home” employees will have to ACTUALLY work from home.
- ….and 1000’s of unaware coffee go’ers will not plan appropriately and will have a grumpy day.
So, spread the word…..or better yet try a new coffee joint! Additional details here.
