Sunday is coffee shop’s last day, about a year and a half after it first opened

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 location.

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

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