Starbucks at IAD to close(rumor)

There's a rumor buzz going around IAD that all the Starbucks are closing and generic coffee shops are going to open in their place.

I just looked through UA's website

and they are very proud to offer Starbucks coffee on their flights. (I'm going to take me first UA trip shortly, so I had a healthy interest in the onboard catering)

Knowing that I will be drinking that self same coffee on board shortly, or having just sated myself with it on a 7 hour flight before arriving to IAD, I for one certainly wouldn't be interested in purchasing it at the airport as well!

IAD evidently discovered there is still one outlet open and serving quasi-food (brick-like prepackaged sub sandwiches) before the foodless HP 9 PM redeye to LAS. This had to stop.
