The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE PROVINCE - BY NANCY MACPHEE

Star­bucks will soon be no more in Sum­mer­side.

The store’s man­ager, Melissa Mal­loy, con­firmed Thurs­day

that the coffee shop, which is si­t­u­ated at 447 Granville St., would be clos­ing its doors at the end of the day on Sun­day, Jan. 17.

The clo­sure comes about a year and a half af­ter Star­bucks first opened in the city.

APM an­nounced early in 2014, that its de­vel­op­ment team had reached a deal with the pop­u­lar coffee fran­chise to bring a Star­bucks to the western city.

APM be­gan con­struc­tion in the spring of that year on what is known as North­gate Plaza at a cost of $1.7 mil­lion.

The plaza also houses Pita Pit and a Ben­jamin Moore paints lo­ca­tion.

Star­bucks opened later in the year, on Aug. 2.

Mal­loy wouldn’t com­ment on the clo­sure, re­fer­ring fur­ther in­quiries to Star­bucks’ me­dia hot­line.
