Starbucks has confirmed the closure of a number of coffee shops in the Bay of Islands, and is now providing support services for the affected customers.
The closure was announced on Thursday morning by Starbucks, which confirmed that the coffee shops will be closed on Tuesday, April 5, at 12:01am.
The cafes are located in:Carrin Bay, Carrin, Carrin Bay, Caulfield, Carriner Bay, Cobh, Cobin, Cobol, Cockerar, Coober Pedy, Coombe Bay, Crookham, Daly Bay, Daly Head, Daly Hills, Dalyville, Dalyvale, Dalywood, Dalywin, Durack, Erinyes, Ferrum, Fitzroy, Gippsland, Gidley, Heidelberg, Hope Bay, Hope, Hillside, Irvine, Kambah, Langley, Laverton, Lavers, Lorne, Lyne, Mangere, McLeod, Mount Gambier, Mount Hope, Narre Warren, North Ballarat, Oakleigh, Perth, Pittwater, Perth Harbour, Port Stephens, Red Hill, Redfern, Rosebrook, Ryde, Selwyn, Shirebrook, Southend, Springbrook, Stirling, Strathfield, Surry Hills, The Bay, The Rocks, The Woodlands, Townsville, Townsland, Warburton, Warrnambool, Warrawong.
Starbucks said the coffee stores were not the same as the ones it operated before the closures, and had previously closed due to “significant demand for the product”.
“These stores were subject to significant operational and financial risk and had to be sold to new owners or re-opened to meet the new requirements,” it said.
“The coffee business is a dynamic and challenging environment, and we understand that some of these businesses have been forced to close, which has impacted our business and impacted customers.”
Starbucks has offered support services to customers affected by the closures and has set up an email support line for customers who may have questions about the closure.
