Well, I guess they couldn't stick to their strategy anymore. starbucks' model is all around dominating market share. I.E. they would open two shops on the same block even if one loses money. They would rather have a store losing money than give a competitor the opportunity to come in and "steal" their client base. Seems like the losers keep getting bigger....

They originally were planning to close 100. However, Dunkin Donuts and McDonalds have come out with new coffee and is killing Starbucks sales. Not only is it less expensive, but apparently delicious!
