Starbucks closures in Shreveport/Bossier


Starbucks Corp has just released the list of store closures.

Download the list (pdf)

In Shreveport, we'll lose the I-20 & Pines location. (map) The next near store closing will be in Monroe. So much for java culture there. Now's the time to move it underground.

Baton Rouge is being hit unusually hard, losing a nine out of its eighteen stores.

And I was just getting excited about the sortof free iPhone WiFi in Starbucks locations.

When I read about Starbucks closing down stores today, I wasn't the least bit afraid of them filing for bankruptcy or closing down forever. I've been following the whole Starbucks ordeal on savvywallet.com. Even with the free iced coffee on Wednesday promotion, introduction of their fruity smoothies, and free wifi with gift card registrations. The only thing I'm worried about is not enough hotspots for wifi. There are several stores around my area that are closing down, and that's what I'm concerned aboWhen I read about Starbucks closing down stores today, I wasn't the least bit afraid of them filing for bankruptcy or closing down forever.

I enjoy walking around the streets, plop down and always be able to find a signal because I know a Starbucks is near. The glory days are over. ut.

sorry about the double post. I tried to copy and paste it again, cause I thought I was going to lose it. I pasted it twice. You can edit it, and delete this post.
