Starbucks To Close 600 Stores, Cut Up To 12,000 Jobs MSNBC says that Starbucks has announced that it will be closing 600 locations in the US and could eliminate up to 12,000 full and part-time jobs.

Okay, seriously, if someone decided that they wanted to rock the very foundations of my world just for fun, this is the kind of info they would tell me to induce a heart attack, stroke, loss of bladder control, etc…..(seriously, who knows with me?). Then they would laugh and point at the terrible expression on my face and the way that all the blood had drained out of it, due to a sudden huge loss of blood pressure due to, of course, shock…….and they would then pride themselves on pulling the funniest practical joke ever.

EXCEPT THAT IT ISN’T.

We just barely got our starbucks out here in Maine (Auburn), which for some is considered the very edge of the civilized world. I just hope hope hope that ours our spared.

Oh great and mighty starbucks, do not deprive us of the bean!!!
