TO: Mr. Richard Gandionco, District Manager, Starbucks Mr. Howard Schultz, CEO, Starbucks We, the undersigned, would like to ask that the Hills Plaza Starbucks at 2 Harrison St in San Francisco remain open and not be closed as a part of Starbucks' restructuring of locations. This Starbucks location, currently scheduled for closure as soon as the end of this month, fills a great daily need for coffee, tea, and tasty treats for people who work in this area of town, and should not be closed. We all make daily trips to this location, with hopes that a great Americano or Soy Iced Latte will get us through the morning, and then again in the afternoon. The next closest Starbucks location is three blocks away, which may not seem far, but it turns a quick 10 minute Starbucks run into 20+ minutes, which many of us do not have the time to take. If this location is closed, Starbucks will lose valuable customers who will not be able to take the time to go to the other location. The staff at this location are friendly and we look forward to seeing them on a daily basis. Please leave this location open. Thank you for your time.
