Flailing National Chain Keeps RI Stores Opened

starbucks-green-tea-frap Fans of mediocre, overpriced coffee rejoiced today when they learned that Starbucks will not close any of its Rhode Island locations.

From the ProJo Biz Blog:

Fans of Starbucks coffee can rest easy as the Seattle, Wash., chain skipped over Rhode Island in a recently announced store-closure plan.

Starbucks this week named the 600 stores it will close around the country and no Rhode Island locations appeared on the list. Starbucks loyalists in Massachusetts are not so lucky, as the company will close seven stores in the Bay State.

So, if your feeling the craving for a Mint Chocolatey Chip Frappuccino with Whipped Chocolate Creme and scone that was baked last week, frozen, and shipped to thaw onsite, rest assured that you can stop by any one of the five Providence Starbucks locations within a one mile radius of each other.

    I have trouble feeling bad for a corporation that put so many small coffee shops out of business. Oh, well…karma’s a bitch.
