The Starbucks on 2nd Avenue and 9th Street closes on Monday
Store closing signs are now up at the Starbucks at 145 Second Ave. (Thanks to Steven for the photos and tip!)
Per the signage, this outpost closes on Monday here on the northwest corner at Ninth Street...
This was expected, as the storefront was recently listed for rent. (Price is "negotiable.")
No word on why this location is closing.
Last June, Starbucks announced that it would close 150 "poorly performing company-operated stores" in 2019, "mostly [in] urban areas that are densely populated with Starbucks locations," as CNN reported.
This makes the second local Starbucks in recents months to shutter. The outpost on Broadway at Ninth Street closed in early January.
Other EV Starbucks are located on First Avenue at 13th Street, First Avenue at Third Street and Avenue A at St. Mark's Place. The 23-year-old location on Astor Place received a major interior renovation last fall.
