-A +A
Starbucks has released a list of stores being closed that includes the 660 Auburn Folsom Road location in Auburn, along with 10 other locations in Northern and Central California. The closures are among the 300 announced in January, according to the Sacramento Business Journal, which added employees will be relocated or given severance pay. The coffee company will continue to operate four outlets in the Auburn area — at the Auburn Town Center, Lincoln Way at the Foresthill exit of Interstate 80, Bell and Highway 49, and in Safeway at 2550 Bell Road. Starbucks opened the Auburn-Folsom Road location in 2005 in Skyridge Courtyard.
