Popular Coffee Stop in Longview, TX Clears Up Confusion, Not Closing Permanently
There has been some confusion surrounding one Starbucks location in Longview, TX. Is it closed down now? Is it closing for good? Is it closing temporarily? Let's get to the bottom of this, shall we?
Well, some good news if you were hoping for it to just be a temporary shutdown. Turns out the Starbucks at 3092 N Eastman Rd. will be closing their doors temporarily, beginning on February 28th and going through March 18th.
Heather W. share the following on the All Things Longview Facebook Group, "Starbucks on Eastman is NOT closing permanently. They will be closed temporarily, Feb 28-Mar 18th for a remodel."
She went on to give the store and employees a glowing review, "The staff are super sweet. I love that we have so many great coffee shop options in town and the are open again in the mornings at 5am."
I did make a call up to the location this afternoon and can confirm that they were open, and an employee was able to confirm what Heather posted is correct. So to be clear, the Starbucks on N. Eastman Rd is currently open for normal business up until Feb. 28th.
