Today Starbucks will be implementing its nationwide no-smoking policy where it will designate all previous smoking areas as non-smoking.
The following sign has been posted in all branches since a couple of weeks ago:
Dear valued Customers,
In compliance with the new Smoking Ordinance Republic Act Section 5, No. 9211, please be advised that effective Monday, June 27th, all Starbucks stores nationwide will be smoke-free.
All previously designated smoking outdoor areas will be converted to non-smoking.
Thank you so much in advance for your cooperation!
