Lake Wales, Florida – Rumors have been circulated for awhile now about the closing of Starbucks. The Eagle Ridge Mall coffee venue has been around nearly 10 years. Originally the location, which is just off the food court, was a Barnie’s Coffee for many years. According to multiple employees the location is going to close in the future, but an exact date has not been given. According to one employee they know it will be after summer, but before the holidays.
The restaurant chain has a Winter Haven location and employees were given option to working there.
It has been confirmed that another location in the mall will begin to sell coffee & another food vendor is entering the mall.
