Starbucks to open 1,500 more U.S. stores in the next five years
Remember when Starbucks closed 1,000 stores in 2008? The company now says they weren't shuttered because Starbucks was oversaturated; it was simply a case of the company not being careful about where it put new stores. (I take that as a dig at former CEO Jim Donald.)
It will be interesting to see where they place these new U.S. stores; as I travel, I still get the sense that I'm always within a mile (or less) of a Starbucks.
