Starbucks to stop selling newspapers

Starbucks Corp. is getting out of the newspaper business.

Starting on Sept. 1, the coffee giant will no longer sell newspapers at its approximately 6,800 company-owned U.S. locations nationwide, reported The New York Post. Starbucks sells The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and USA Today.

According to the Post report, many Starbucks customers take the newspapers and read them while they drink their beverage — and then either leave them on the table or walk off with them without paying.

In other changes, Starbucks plans to remove fixtures that display whole bean coffee and grab-and-go snacks, reported CNBC.
