|Subject: STARBUCKS CLOSING ALL STORES IN ISRAEL
Starbucks needs to wake up and smell the coffee. Please read on.
Just heard that Starbucks Coffee is closing all their stores in Israel. Starbucks says that it is a business decision not a political decision.
They ARE NOT CLOSING any stores in the Arab or Muslim countries.
Let us let them know that we will not patronise their stores for their position on Israel. When they lose enough business, maybe they will get the message that we as a Jewish population will not tolerate their actions.
We have to get the word out, so please send this message to any and all Jewish people you know.
|by BelovedBirdSo, RD, anyway to get me the info of how many starbucks there are here? And where? Not planning on going, just reaaaly curious.|
|the most likely reasons for the retreat were Starbucks' difficulties in dealing with its Israeli partner and the underperformance of their six stores. (Starbucks was a latecomer to an already-saturated Israeli market, didn't adapt well to local market conditions, and offered little to distinguish themselves from their competition except higher prices).|

. For the hebrew speakers, the answer was "ain davar kazeh". Meaning- no such thing.
