UK Arm Of Starbucks Suffers £17.2m Loss

The UK arm of Starbucks lost £17.2 million during the twelve months that ended on September 30, 2018, according to a filing made on June 27.

Starbucks suffered as a result of renegotiating leases and shutting down unprofitable outlets in Britain, which led to the company taking a £20 million hit.
