Starbucks To Shut Down

On May 29th for Racial Bias Training.

Major java player Starbucks has announced they will close its stores for an afternoon on May 29th to roll out racial-bias training.

The movement comes after protests erupted over the weekend because of the arrests of two black men in a Philadelphia Starbucks last week.

The last time Starbucks closed in a similar fashion was to retrain their Baristas on how to make espresso and steam milk. Sources tell us that particular closure cost the company $6 million in lost revenue. That was back in 2008.

This upcoming closure is estimated to cost Starbucks $12 Million beans.
