Baristas at Starbucks in Westshore Town Centre in Langford are brewing their final cups of coffee on site.
A representative at the location confirmed it will be closing, but cannot confirm the last day. Employees will be offered positions at other locations near the mall, including Belmont Market.
The closure is part of a greater shutdown of up to 300 Starbucks locations across Canada, set to be completed by the end of March.
The coffeehouse and roastery chain previously said the move is part of its pivot to add more drive-thru locations and expand curbside pick-up only storefronts amid the pandemic.
In October 2020, a Starbucks in Saanich’s Cadboro Bay closed despite a petition signed by around 250 residents calling to keep it open.
