Starbucks Closing 300 Stores, Laying Off Nearly 7,000 (Washington Post)

Starbucks' plan of closing stores and laying of its employees was reported by Korean newspapers. Korean readers' response to the news was a bit funny, showing Starbuck's dominant status in the country. Here are some of them.

- But Korea will feed you. Don't worry.
- Korea is just having more and more stores! There is just no vacancy even in the second floor! I cannot just find a seat!!!
- But overall revenue of Starbucks won't decrease that much ^^. Because we're protecting your stores. damn.
- You have Korea on your side. giggle-giggle
- Korean Starbucks is still strong and steady. giggle.
- It might become a Korean company someday. giggle-giggle.
- Korean Starbucks is increasing the number of its stores. If it goes like this, Korea might take over Starbucks. giggle.
