The year-old Starbucks coffee shop at the corner of North Guadalupe and West San Francisco streets is no more.
After the shop permanently closed at 4 p.m. Friday, at 6 p.m. that day, property owner Heritage Hotels & Resorts put out a news release that it is seeking a new tenant.
By Saturday morning, the Starbucks sign above the door was gone, as was its name from a sign on Guadalupe Street listing tenants, though Starbucks “customers only” parking signs remained.
“Rather than seek another national coffee vendor, Heritage Hotels & Resorts is currently searching locally for a coffee brand to deliver a more personal experience between customers and employees,” the release reads.
Heritage Hotels owns the buildings fronting San Francisco Street west of its Eldorado Hotel & Spa.
Starbucks had a brief tenure at that location, opening April 18, 2018, said Shawn Buckley, communications director at Heritage Hotels.
Heritage Hotels attributed the closing to a license agreement stipulation requiring closure of one of two Starbucks within a couple blocks of each other. A notice on the Starbucks door on Guadalupe referred people to the older Starbucks at 106 W. San Francisco St.
There are nine remaining Starbucks outlets in Santa Fe, with another under construction on St. Michael’s Drive next to Wells Fargo Bank.
The interior dining space at the now-closed Starbucks measures about 2,380 square feet with an additional 940 square feet of outdoor patio, providing a total capacity for 60 seated guests, according to the Heritage release.
