The Carlsbadistan Starbucks Stops Here

by The Editors on February 27, 2008


Not only did every single Starbucks Coffee location in the nation close yesterday at 5:30 PM for employee reprogramming (“When customers arrive at their Starbucks store tomorrow morning, they will be greeted with the following promise: Your drink should be perfect, every time. If not, let us know and we’ll make it right”), but more importantly, our Starbucks is closed for a complete remodel.

And by that we mean, completely ripped up all the way down to the concrete floor. The salty-lookin’ old dudes who normally hang outside in the chairs by the window and give every woman the vertical scan have been replaced by tile cutters and saw-horses.

An inked-up worker who referred to us as “Boss,” said we shouldn’t worry because the place will be re-opened by next “Wednesday or Thursday;” hopefully, with those new AT&T Internet connections that give all pre-paid Starbucks card users two free hours of wireless a day. We’ll see.
