As I’ve mentioned previously, I spend most of my work time with my laptop in various Starbucks around my neighborhood. A few months ago, I wandered up to the one closest to me only to find it locked with its windows soaped up and a “BUSINESS SPACE FOR SALE” sign on the door. No big deal, since there was another Starbucks two blocks in another direction.
It was, however, a sign of things to come. It appears that Starbucks is shutting down 600 of its stores.
I can’t help but wonder how this will effect the game industry.
