The best view within the glory of Kansas City’s prized district Country Club Plaza, in my opinion. Had to be Starbucks Coffee comforting patio, back in 2009, when I visited the city for the second time in two years.
So, to my dismay I was shocked to have learned that my favorite spot was closing permanently. Perched up high staring out at the crowd as they penetrated the hustle and bustle of the Country Club Plaza’s exuberance affairs.
I tried to contract corporate Starbucks in Seattle, but they had no further details in the matter. So here is the story copied and pasted from The Kansas City Star news folks.
The Starbucks on the Country Club Plaza abruptly closed its doors permanently Monday afternoon, according to a letter posted outside the coffee shop. “On August 22nd at 3:30 p.m., your Starbucks Country Club Plaza location at 302 Nichols Rd. will be permanently closing,” the sign said. “We would like to thank you for being part of our store community; you are the heart of who we are at Starbucks.” The company didn’t give a reason for the closing of the store at 302 Nichols Road. Officials with Starbucks couldn’t be reached for comment.
The Plaza Starbucks was one of the first stores in the Kansas City area where staff announced plans to unionize following a nationwide trend of Starbucks stores unionizing.
Since then, staff at at least two area locations have won union elections, including an Independence location that in May became the first Starbucks store in Missouri to unionize. Meanwhile, Starbucks staff at Kansas City’s 41st and Main Street location won their election in June.
