The Media is contantly talking about the depressing economy that is starting to annoy me. That is not to say that the economy is having problems, but, the media is reporting on every depressing news on the economy that they can find, that it is starting to get a little annoying.
Anyway, found this article on Starbucks that I thought was a perfect example:
Title of the article:
Scoll down to the end of the article:Starbucks to cut 6,700 jobs, close 300 stores, 200, in the US
So, Starbucks is going to close 200 stores in the US, while opening 140 new stores.The company said it plans to open only 140 new stores in the U.S. in fiscal 2009, down from its previous target of 200. Overseas, it will open 170, down from the 270 it had planned to open.
Also, Starbuck has been having problems since last year, & "all" of their problems may or may not be directly related to the economy. Once of Starbucks problems has to do with a "taste" problem & competition.
So, what are your thoughts?
