Local Starbucks to remain open

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

Rumors circulating the community that Starbucks on Central Avenue is closing its doors have been dispelled by Starbucks' corporate headquarters. In response to telephone calls and e-mail, Starbucks' spokesman Evan Pham says the popular coffee store will remain open.

In an e-mail Friday, Pham wrote that while he can't comment on rumor and speculation, as of last July, only four store locations in New Mexico were confirmed for closure.  Los Alamos is not among that group.

Stores on the July closure list include:

Albuquerque – 2270 Wyoming at Menaul;

Bloomfield – 500 W. Broadway;

Las Cruces – 11732 N. Main St. at Temple, and

Roswell – 4506 N. Main St.

"Starbucks recently announced that we plan to close approximately 300 additional under-performing company-operated stores: approximately 200 in the U.S. and with the remainder in international markets," Pham stated in the e-mail. "We do not at this time have specific details about numbers of partners or stores that may be impacted by these announcements in New Mexico."
