A popular Santa Monica Starbucks has closed permanently.

A sign posted on the door of the Starbucks on 15th Street and Montana Avenue informs costumers that the location has been closed permanently.

According to Starbucks, the closure is unrelated to the COVID-19 outbreak.

According to a spokesperson for Starbucks, the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak was not a reason behind the closing.

“As part of Starbucks standard course of business, we continually evaluate our business to ensure a healthy store portfolio. After careful consideration, we’ve made the difficult decision to close the store at 1426 Montana Avenue. This closure is unrelated to the COVID-19 pandemic, and has been planned well in advance,” the spokesperson said.

Other Santa Monica Starbucks stores remain open for curbside and to-go service, including the location a few blocks away on 7th Street and Montana Avenue, 26th Street and San Vicente Boulevard and Wilshire Boulevard and 11th Street.
