Give them a week and they will want to sawcut across your new tile, in typical Starbucks construction fashion.

Finally finished. Took a little over 3 weeks. Went back on Monday to finish up the last of deficiencies, etc.
We walked into the store Monday morning hoping to finish up the grouting and replace a "few" broken tile (almost 50 was more like it ) and this is how the store looked:

I think the store will actually open to the public on the 14th.

No, it went in first.
Cheap tile and 3,000 lb pallets being rolled over the fairly new tile cracked a shit load of them.
