here today...gone tomorrow

Today (the 3rd August) I thought I'd go and have one last Starbucks coffee before it was too late. I was too late. Starbucks recently announced that 61 Australian stores would close forever. Evidently, they must have stated they'd be closed "by" the 3rd. Today there was no sign of Starbucks ever existing. Blacked out windows, signage all removed, just a rather large FOR LEASE sign sitting in the window. Ho hum, looks like I'll have to travel to Sydney for a coffee from now on.
