As part of our ongoing commitment to invest in underserved communities and create pathways for those facing barriers to opportunity, we are proud to announce the grand opening of a new Starbucks Community Store in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles, CA. Opened on September 3rd, the Watts Community Store is the 17th Community Store in the U.S. and the second in the LA area. Through the Watts store, we are proud to have created 22 local jobs by hiring partners (employees) from the area. Hiring local is an important part to us, as we aim to support economic development and build stronger connections within the community.
