But the good news is, everything is on sale, and who doesn't love a good silver lining closing clearance sale? While the future plans for Starbucks retail have not yet been made clear, the company told Business Insider recently that they're shutting down their online store in efforts to transition their marketplace from their company website to a variety digital partnerships.
