business news in context, analysis with attitude

Starbucks has struck a deal with Borders Books & Music that will replace the bookseller’s instore cafes with Seattle’s Best Coffee shops – which are owned by Starbucks.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. It will, however, put Starbucks products into the nation’s two largest booksellers, since the company already has its flagship cafes in Barnes & Noble stores around the country.
