As third places go, Starbucks is probably one of the most recognized and plentiful brands out there. Now with the closure of 600 U.S. shops imminent, it was only a matter of time until someone thought to build a Google mashup documenting the fallout (dammit! Too late).
Enter the Seattle Times. Above is their map based on speculation and rumors from baristas to regulars. Though highly based on second hand info, so far Spokane is "off the map". But for how long? If anyone has the inside scoop on local SBs closing up submit it to the Seattle Times site. We'll be at The Shop.
