We are deeply saddened by the senseless acts that have taken place in Brussels today.

Amidst reports of attacks targeting Brussels Airport and a metro station, initial indications are that an explosion took place outside our store within the airport. While one partner (employee) sustained minor injuries, we can confirm that all our partners are safe and have been accounted for. This store and all other Starbucks stores in Belgium will remain closed until further notice.  

We are monitoring this situation closely, and will provide additional information as it becomes available.
