Response from Starbucks Coffee Company - Case # 7098249

E-mail Print PDF

Hello Leo,
 
Thank you so much for taking the time to write to us.
 
As you mentioned in your email, Taiwan was previously labeled "Taiwan, Province of China" on the store locator system on Starbucks.com in deference to International naming conventions. Starbucks prefers not to take a position on political issues, however the system has been adjusted and the store locator is now labeled "Taiwan."  We apologize for any frustration this may have caused you.
 
If you have any further questions or concerns that I was unable to address, please feel free to let me know. 
 
Thanks again,
 
Madeline A.
Customer Relations
Starbucks Coffee Company

Monday through Friday, 5AM to 6PM (PST)
 
 
p.s. I'd really like to know how my response met your needs; click here if you'd be willing to share your thoughts in a brief survey.

Newsflash

Former president Chen Shui-bian (陳水扁) met members of his family for what could be the last time yesterday, gathering in a small room at his detention center to emotionally bid farewell.

Former first lady Wu Shu-jen (吳淑珍), who like her husband was sentenced to at least 11 years in prison, and their son, Chen Chih-chung (陳致中), arrived at the Taipei Detention Center in Tucheng (土城) in the morning in an SUV driven by some of the former president’s supporters.
