It's a fact that Starbucks will close 600 stores and the whole process will continue into 2009. It's also a fact that the US is saturated with the coffee shops. This map, however, is the result of tips from Starbucks employees and some eavesdropping reporters.
There are nowhere near several hundred locations listed, but you can check out the specific stores that are supposedly closing. This map is far from complete as it shows only one CA location and zero in Arizona — two states where Starbucks overestimated the buying power of residents facing foreclosure. If you know of a store that's closing the Seattle Times wants you to let them know.
