Starbucks announced that is was closing 8,000 of it’s stores throughout the U.S. today because for anti-bias training. Included in the closures are the 6 Starbucks locations in Walt Disney World, which will be closed from 3pm to 7pm.
The incident which brought about the anti-bias training necessary for Starbucks employees follows the arrest of two African American men in a Philadelphia Starbucks while waiting for a friend. A video previewing the training says it will include recorded remarks from Starbucks executives. “We are here to make sure Starbucks is a place where everyone, everyone feels welcome,” says CEO Kevin Johnson. It’s created to ensure Starbucks continues a welcoming and warm atmosphere for everyone.
There are 6 Starbucks locations in Walt Disney World including all 4 parks: Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios as well as Disney Springs.
