South Garner Street Starbucks To Close January 15, Pugh Street Location To Open In May

State College’s South Garner Street Starbucks will permanently close at 7 p.m. on Sunday, January 15, according to the coffee shop’s Instagram page. Its relocation site, located at 150 S. Pugh St., is set to open sometime in May.

News initially broke toward the end of the fall semester that the popular Starbucks spot, located at 141 S. Garner St., is closing. Back in early December, a Starbucks spokesperson said the new location on Pugh Street would open in the spring of 2023 and plans to hire 25 employees.

Starbucks will set up shop underneath the Pugh Center in its commercial space, which has been vacant ever since the building’s opening in the fall of 2020.

In the meantime, the popular coffee chain is encouraging customers to visit two other State College locations — 232 W. College Ave. and 2030 N. Atherton St. However, the Starbucks located on West College Avenue is the only one within walking distance for students living downtown besides the various on-campus spots.

When Starbucks officially opens its doors at 150 S. Pugh St., it’ll join several other coffee shops within close proximity to each other. Webster’s Bookstore Cafe and Chew Chew Bun are across the street, while Elixr is right down the road.
