MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Someone broke out windows at a new Starbucks location in Whitehaven overnight after the store suffered days without power.
Staff said nothing was taken, but the damage was evident Wednesday morning. Broken glass was left behind after someone threw a rock through the windows.
An employee with the store said it hasn’t had power for two weeks after a crash nearby damaged underground utilities. It was initially set to reopen Thursday, but now it’s unclear when the store will reopen.
When WREG reached out to Starbucks cooperate about the incident, a spokesperson said in a statement, “Our store in Memphis, TN is temporarily closed for repairs after damage occurred to the store’s electricity source. We are thankful that no partners or customers were harmed. We look forward to continuing to serve the community and encourage our customers to visit us at other stores in the area. Customers can use the Store Locator on the Starbucks app or website to stay up to date on their store’s hours of operation.”
The Starbucks at Shelby Drive and Elvis Presley Boulevard just opened Aug. 28.
