Starbucks Gets A Cup Full Of Socialism. Judge Rules Stores Can`t Close
After Teavana (a beverage store owned by Starbucks) announced they were going to close up all 379 of it`s stores, a lawsuit was filed against them for violating their lease agreement. The case went to court and a judge ultimately ruled against Starbucks and ordered 77 of their stores to stay open in various malls. Aside from the violation of the lease agreement, the argument that “losing a high profile store like Teavana could hurt foot traffic in its malls, and thus hurt the other tenants and cause their stores to close, too.” was put forth. It`s good to see liberal owned starbucks getting a little dose of socialism.
