As has been previously reported, Starbucks is seeking a land use permit to open a location at Suburban Plaza with a drive-thru. The Medlock Area Neighborhood Association recently released a new site plan of Suburban Plaza which showed the new location along North Decatur Road.
Tomorrow’s News Today reports that the Starbucks would be built close enough to the Cozy Burger Town location in the plaza along North Decatur that the aforementioned burger joint – with the best name around – would need to close. (Cozy Burger Town has a second location at Northlake Mall.) The Selig plans on the MANA site also show a revised building plan for the nearby building at the corner of Church and North Decatur, which suggests that whole area of the site is planned for redevelopment.
According to TNT, a sign on the door of Cozy Burger Town says that they are closed this week, but will reopen next Tuesday.
In related news, TNT also reports that the Starbucks in Emory Village has elected not to renew its lease and “would close soon”. The large Starbucks on Oxford Road next to Emory’s Barnes & Noble will remain open.
