Starbucks Stores Scheduled Down Time

Wednesday, 27 February 2008

Looks like Starbucks is currently closed due to a scheduled down time. Not the web site, the physical stores—all of them!

All American Starbucks shops will shut down this evening between 5:30 and 9 p.m. local time to conduct what the company is calling “a historic in-store education and training event.”

Interesting to see actual bricks-and-morter operations like Starbucks scheduling down time (aside from the normal hours they are closed). I wonder what sort of signs they put up for folks showing up for coffee?
