Where to get your Starbucks fix when stores close

TwitterTwo men were arrested at a Starbucks in Philadelphia

In a statement released May 23, company officials say most of its 7,000 licensed stores, such as those operated by major grocery stores, hotels, universities or airports, will remain open.

"But when a company is willing to put the hard issues before us", he says, "I think those kinds of companies should be supported, should be applauded". Starbucks also offered a chance to talk to a few employees that it has selected later int eh day.

"It is very important that we take this opportunity to go as deep as we possibly can", McGhee said.

"This is a great start, what they're doing". The half-day closure was announced after video of police arresting two black men in a Philadelphia Starbucks in April, caused outrage. "We are different, but standing up for each other and having an increased sense of belonging to each other is really important", Sharma said. A sign on one Chicago store said the location was closing so employees could "reconnect with our mission and share ideas about how to make Starbucks even more welcoming".

"Starbucks is a company built on nurturing the human spirit, and it's on us to harness our scale and expertise to do right by the communities we serve", said Rossann Williams, Starbucks' executive vice president of USA retail.

Starbucks has since changed its policy to allow all members of the public to spend time or use the restroom in stores without making a purchase.


"Our hope is that these learning sessions and discussions will make a difference within and beyond our stores", Rossann Williams, Starbucks' executive vice president of USA retail, said in a statement Wednesday. We want this to be an open and honest conversation starting with our partners.

Up to 180,000 employees at Starbucks locations and headquarters were trained from a "tool kit" hoping to 'focus on understanding prejudice and the history of public accommodations in the United States'. The NAACP Legal Defense Fund's Sherrilyn Ifill, who is one of Starbucks's advisors on its anti-bias training material, has previously noted that "this can't be a one-off".

Prior to the manager calling the police, Robinson was denied usage of the bathroom at the Starbucks because he was not a paying customer.

That follows comments from Starbucks Chairman Howard Schultz said he didn't want people to feel "less than" if they were refused access. "For it to be closed today is going to hurt a lot of things", said Mr. Luster, who is black.

However, it is expected that the training will have a largely positive effect in the long run.
