NEW YORK (CBS/AP) — Starbucks says it will close its more than 8,000 U.S. stores for several hours next month to conduct racial-bias training to its nearly 175,000 workers.
The announcement comes after two black men were arrested in a Center City Starbucks store, sparking protests and calls for a boycott on social media.
Starbucks Corp. says the stores will be closed on the afternoon on May 29. Its corporate offices will also be closed at that time.
