Starbucks closing in Brunswick Square

your-local-starbucks-closingAs a follow up to the Country 94 story that ran earlier today, it has been confirmed that the Starbucks in Brunswick Square will be closing on November 5th with no replacement location planned in the uptown.

A Starbucks representative did say that they will be focusing on locations with drive-thru’s in the future.

Although no specific reason was given, it’s likely safe to say that our “buy local” loyalty to the home grown and (in my humble opinion) excellent Java Moose and the (to make matters worse) opening of Second Cup on King Street likely had an impact on the performance of Starbucks’ uptown location.

This is an unfortunate blow for the uptown and for Brunswick Square.
