Central Ohio Starbucks closing

by Maureen McCabe on July 20, 2008

From The Huffington Post nationally 600 Starbucks are closing … tweeted or retweeted by SoldierAnt in Columbus…

I know when I was watching TV News (Channel 10 local TV news I think)  the other night they were going to say which Central Ohio Starbucks locations were closing…  During the commercial we discussed where Starbucks locations in striking distance (the north outer-belt area between Polaris and Worthington) were.  The breaking news of which Starbucks were closing must have been not stimulating enough to keep me awake because I nodded off during the commercial or before the news got to which local Starbucks are closing.

These are all Ohio Starbucks that are closing… not just those in Central Ohio.

OHIO

2525 1505 FIFTH AVE 1505 W FIFTH AVE COLUMBUS OH
11856 YUKON BUILDING 601 N HIGH ST COLUMBUS OH
14056 REYNOLDSBURG 6144 E MAIN ST COLUMBUS OH
13859 DUBLIN, SAWMILL & HARD 7561 SAWMILL RD DUBLIN OH
14170 THE SHOPS AT FALLEN TIMBERS 3100 MAIN ST MAUMEE OH
2389 RICHMOND TOWN SQUARE 691 RICHMOND RD RICHMOND HEIGHTS OH
10399 OHIO VALLEY MALL 67800 MALL RD ST. CLAIRSVILLE OH
11883 MAXTOWN 925 N. STATE ST WESTERVILLE OH
2792 HIGH ST 530 N HIGH ST WORTHINGTON OH “

Does that nean 2792 N. High St. Worthigton? That is almost down to Dodridge.  That’s in the 43202 ZIP Code,  I think.

530 High St.  Worthigton (the Starbucks that was fire bombed a few years ago?) corner of High St. and South St.?  Used to be a Friendly’s Restaurant?

43085 and nearby Starbucks according to Google maps

This is just the 43085 ZIP code. Click on the Large Map to see the location of the Starbucks up in Crosswoods, the one on Sawmill… the Starbucks at Graceland, those in Westerville and more.

I am not a big Starbucks fan… I liked Starbucks coffee when I first tasted it out in California in the 90′s… but it is not my favorite coffee.  We visited a Starbucks in Westerville a number of times last summer when I had a Starbucks gift card (free coffee) and we were putting up  open house signs in the area after church on Sunday.

It seems to be a classic case of a company expanding too much, too fast. Of course the economic downturn is probably the main culprit. We were mourning in the office that the Westerville State Street location right around the corner is closing.

I have not paid that much attention. I know some cities there are so many they are right on top of one another. Downtown Columbus there are three very close.

None closing in Cleveland or Cinci.

The State Street location is the one that we visited a number of times last summer.

Yes, I think they are a victim of their own success. It is an area people always say they can cut their budget if they take out the$3/coffee they spend each day.

I had to get ice for a fundraiser at McD’s this last week for 4 days right about 8 am and I was shocked at the number of people who get breakfast there now. I had NO idea.

Wonder where you get the list Mo of closings for SB? I’d like to find out about Ann arbor.

Karen it’s the first link there…in the post.

Doesn’t look like any in A2.

Dearblorn, Detroit, Flint, Frasier, Gaylord, Eastpointe?, Grandville, Greenville, Kalamazoo, Lansing, Ludington, Okemos, Rochester..

no Ann Arbor

I was wondering if the store on 530 N. High is going to be available for lease. I’m looking for a restaurant-ready or -near ready space to open a sit-down restaurant and the one Starbucks is currently in is the most ideal. Any idea or leads on this is much appreciated.
