Retailers, consumers and prices
Reuters checked out some of the stores that Starbucks is closing in California’s Inland Empire – an area well known for being a leader in home foreclosures.
Some of the coffee shop closures made sense, some didn’t and some had us wondering just what Starbucks was thinking.
This yet-to-be closed cafe, on the left, is in an upscale mall near a eerily quiet housing development — a no-brainer.
Another that is set to be closed is located in a busy, movie theater-anchored shopping center near a university. When we drove by, the store appeared busy.
