I found a list of the Starbucks stores that are being closed.  I was concerned because we have several Starbucks locations in this area that I primarily work.  One opened within the last year and I thought would be a prime target for closure.  According to the list I found, all of our local stores survived – 2 in Seal Beach (by Ralphs and by Boeing), 1 in Long Beach (Marina Pacifica), 2 in Belmont Shore, 1 in Sunset Beach, and 1 in Huntington Beach (the one on Warner/Bolsa Chica). 

Here’s a link to the full list.  http://www.starbucks.com/aboutus/USStoreClosureInfo.pdf

I wanted to make sure you knew that Seal Beach has a Starbucks store close to Boeing at approximately Seal Beach Blvd and Westminster.  It is in the same area where the new hotel is almost opened.  The other Starbucks in Seal Beach is north of the 405 in the Target shopping center.  I’ve found a Starbucks in Sunset Beach and in the Pacifica Marina area.  Anyone know of another one in this immediate area?

Actually, this Starbucks has been here since the end of 2007 but somehow I just missed even though it is immediately adjacent to Seal Beach Blvd and has a drive thru window.
