LEAKED: Internal Starbucks meeting where CEO says “America has become unsafe.” closing stores in Democrat-run cities “this is just the beginning there going to be many more [stores closing].”
On July 11th, 100 Percent Fed Up reported that Starbucks Corp is permanently closing stores in heavy crime areas. According to the Seattle Times, a Starbucks spokesperson announced that more than a dozen stores will close due to drug use, theft, and assault, as concerns for employee safety grow.
Starbucks put out a company memo saying, “You’re also seeing firsthand the challenges facing our communities – personal safety, racism, lack of access to healthcare, a growing mental health crisis, rising drug use, and more. With stores in thousands of communities across the country, we know these challenges can, at times, play out within our stores too. We read every incident report you file – it’s a lot.”
Conspicuously missing from the company’s list of challenges facing their communities was a concern over weak law enforcement and corrupt district attorneys in the Democrat-run cities where the stores are closing. Leftist policies are causing nationwide harm as crime rates rise.
become unsafe. Uh, but you all read the press release over the last couple of days about the fact that we are beginning to close
stores that are not unprofitable. But we’re closing stores as a result of the co-creation sessions that we’ve had. Almost 60 now. Twenty-five in the SSC and the rest in the field, and we had one yesterday in San Antonio. But, in all of those sessions, It has shocked me that one of the primary concerns that our retail partners have is their own personal safety. And then we heard the stories that go along with it about what happens in our bathrooms the issue of mental illness the issues of homelessness, and the issues of crime. And Starbucks is a window into America. We have stores in every community, and we are facing things in which the stores were not built for and so we’re listening to our people and closing stores and this is just the beginning there are going to be many more.”
“And I must say, In my view, at the local, state, and federal levels, these governments across
the country and leaders, mayors and governors, and city councils have abdicated their responsibility in fighting crime and addressing mental illness.”
Senator Tim Scott also said the crime wave Americans face has caused them to lose total faith in the Biden Administration.
With inflation at a 40-year high, a baby formula shortage, border crisis, and crime wave, Americans have lost total faith in the Biden administration.

“This is just the beginning?” It’s unlikely closing these stores will affect Starbucks in the big scheme. One might wonder if just maybe they will realize supporting woke liberals may not pay off in the long run?
I hear it over and over that people are “escaping” from these Democrat-run areas and moving to Republican-run areas. That’s totally understandable. Hopefully they are wise enough to realize they need to change the way they vote along with their address.
