Starbucks Logo in Saudi Arabia

I stumbled upon this very interesting blog post by @RobaAssi

Apparently according to Roba, the Starbucks logo in Saudi Arabia doesn’t have the original mermaid on the logo because it was inappropriate in the Kingdom.  However, an older post by B Knotts dated back to 2000 states that the original logo was restored.

Probably anyone living in the KSA would be the best to confirm if it has been restored or not.

    I`m in the southern province of Saudi Arabia but here no starbucks at all.
    But several friends confirmed this to me! “Jeddeh”
