If you stop by Starbucks in the evening, you won't get any coffee Tuesday night.

Starbucks is shutting-down all of its stores across the country Tuesday night for three hours. All 7,100 stores will be closed from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. to retrain the employees.

The retraining is part of the company's plan to stimulate growth. Sales have been lagging in recent months.
