Starbucks Korea sets restrictions on the number of purchases for Halloween goods
Starbucks Korea stores have set restrictions on how many of the 23 newly released Halloween goods and merchandise each customer could buy after employees protested its marketing strategy for imposing a heavy workload.
The special merchandise consists of tumblers, mugs, cold cups, key chains, and dolls.
There were also two of the two cards, three drinks, and seven food products.
The Starbucks outlets also displayed a sign that listed the stock available.
Many consumers began purchasing the Halloween specials early in the morning, causing items with buying restrictions to run out rapidly.
Second-hand transaction platforms were soon selling the new Starbucks merchandise at a higher price on the same day of its release.
Last week, employees of Starbucks Korea stores staged a demonstration against the excessive workload caused by the company’s marketing events.
The workers hired two trucks that drove around Seoul with signs calling for improved work conditions.
