Bad news for Starbucks fans.

The coffee chain is closing 150 stores in 2019.

Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson says the closures will help the chain better meet the needs of customers.

The Starbucks shops on the chopping block are mostly in urban areas that are densely populated with Starbucks locations.

There's no word on if any locations in Maryland will be closing.

Starbucks closes some underperforming stores every year.

Next year's number of closures is three times the average.
