I hardly ever go to Starbucks — except for rarely-held meetings with clients, that is. So, the closing of Starbucks for one afternoon won't put me in danger of caffeine withdrawal. My special-brew mix for coffee is better than Starbucks brews, anyway! **smile**
Nonetheless, I find this beyond stupid: Starbucks to close all company-owned stores on the afternoon of May 29 for racial-bias education day.
A public relations ploy?
Political correctness on steroids?
Many a time, I've been prevented from using the restroom in a business establishment because I wasn't at the moment a customer of said establishment. Just sayin'.
