The Little Coffee Shop That Could...Almost

Starbucks Corp. has announced it's closing 600 under performing stores in the United States. The Seattle-based premium coffee company also announced it expects to open fewer than 200 new company-operated stores in the United States in fiscal 2009.

The company says it will try to place workers from closed stores in remaining Starbucks. I wonder if this will raise or lower the price of my morning cuppa? the question is, which one will they be closing at Shepherd and River Oaks Blvd? The one with the drive through or the walk up?

Ah, it's just as well anyway, I found it odd that I could get 15 cups of Starbucks on my drive between Houston and Austin. The one in Brenham is nice though. It's fun to know your cream came from the cow that lives just a mile up the road! =)
