Happy Thanksgiving! Thank you to all the partners working today.

Happy Thanksgiving all!  I hope everyone is having good food and some friends and/or family around them.  I just want to say a big thank you to all the Starbucks partners who have to work today.  I realize that some partners may want to work today for whatever reason, but nonetheless, customers appreciate that you are open.  If you are here in Seattle, every year without fail, a large number of Starbucks stores are open including: Fourth and Seneca Starbucks; 7th and Pike Starbucks; Olive Way; Pier 55; First and Pike; Westlake Center (at 4th and Pine); Phinney Ridge (67th and Phinney); 12th and Columbia; University Village, and many more in many cities across the country. Hope everyone is having a fabulous day, and thank you to all the partners working today.  For some people, it's going to take a little extra caffeine to get through the day! ;)

Up for discussion: Free tall beverage when buying Starbucks whole bean coffee.(New packaging causing a problem?)

A coffee event with Starbucks Cheesecake, Brown Butter Apple Tart, Ethiopia Harrar, and Aged Sumatra and more ... all available at the elevated beer and wine stores.
