Dunkin’ To Close 800 Stores by End of the Year
We announced a few weeks ago that Dunkin' already planned on closing 450 Dunkin' locations that are inside Speedway Gas Stations by the end of 2020.
Just yesterday, Dunkin' announced that they will close an additional 350 locations due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to NJ.com:
During April, May and June, sales were down nearly 19 percent from the same period last year as the country grapples with the coronavirus pandemic. Its adjusted net income dropped approximately 44 percent — from $72.4 million to $40.1 million.
The closings are not just here in North America, but Dunkin' locations internationally will be affected as well.
It's a quick and easy walk from me from the Hawk studio to the Dunkin' that is inside the Toms River Library building to grab a cup of coffee. As a matter of fact, if I play Freebird and then Stairway to Heaven right after, I could make it to Dunkin's and back to the studio with some time to kill I'm sure. So please...Don't close the Dunkin' in downtown Toms River. Thank you
