The Starbucks on Niagara-on-the-Lake's Queen Street is closing up shop.

A spokesperson for the coffee shop chain said the restaurant will close its doors this Sunday, Oct. 25.

"We have taken great care to ensure our partners (employees) have been provided with options, including redeployment to another store where possible," said Carly Suppa-Clark, in reponse to emailed questions from The Lake Report.

As to whether the COVID-19 pandemic forced the shop to shut, she was non-committal.

"We have seen strong recovery in our business and have begun our accelerated store transformation to best meet our customers where they are now, which means we will close some stores," Suppa-Clark said. 

"We remain open in neighbouring locations and look forward to serving our customers at those stores," she said.

Ryan Dawson, manager of the location, said he was told not to comment to any media by the company.

"Starbucks staff and myself actually can't comment on any of it. I was specifically told not to comment to any media about the closure of the store."
