Peet’s Coffee has officially acknowledged the closing of the downtown Silver Spring location, which staff was told about last week.
“Closing one of our coffee bars is never an easy decision,” reads an email from the company to the Source. “We know the Silver Spring store was part of the daily routine of so many and we deeply regret that our lease came to an end.
“We have offered all our employees continued employment at one of our other 14 locations in the DMV metro area. It is our sincere hope that they will continue to work for Peet’s. For updated information on Coffeebars and hours near you, please visit the website.”
A GoFundMe drive to raise $3,000 has been created to assist the staff that will lose their jobs when the store closes on Oct. 30.
Starbucks is expected to take over the location.
