Starbucks released the full list of locations to be closed yesterday, and Store #10365, located at 2000 N. Neil St. at the Market Place Mall in Champaign, is on the list. The shift manager on duty at the store today had no comment, and a message left with the corporate media hotline was not immediately returned. Starbucks has not yet announced a closure date for the store. The Neil Street store is the only Champaign-Urbana location slated to be shuttered, but it is among 25 in Illinois. Other area Starbucks slated for closure include stores in Danville and Peoria, among others.
