News Flash: Nearly 7,100 company-operated Starbucks stores across the U.S. were to close at 5:30 p.m. local time Tuesday so some 135,000 employees could go through about three hours of training.
My drive home every evening takes me by two Edmond Starbucks locations, so I checked them out to see what was happening at about 6:30 tonight.
Sure enough, the Starbucks at Broadway and 15th Street was closed, as was the one near Santa Fe on 15th. The Broadway Starbucks had something like a large trash can placed right in front of the door, as well as a car blocking the drive through.
At the Starbucks near Santa Fe, something was blocking the view into the store through the front door, although it was clear that employees were gathered and listening to a supervisor speak.
I stopped at the 15th and Santa Fe store and took a few photographs. I didn’t see any caffeine addicts pounding on the door begging for their coffee fix.
