Two Starbucks locations in Mississauga are temporarily closed
Two Starbucks locations, both in the City Centre area, have temporarily closed due to COVID-19, with one closing for a case and another for the residual economic impact the virus has had on cafe traffic.
A Starbucks spokesperson recently confirmed that the company has temporarily closed the brand's 4076 Confederation Pkwy and Square One Indigo locations.
The Confederation Pkwy cafe closed after a worker tested positive for COVID-19.
"One of our store partners at this location was diagnosed with COVID-19. We quickly activated our protocols, immediately closing the store and initiating a deep clean overnight following all recommended guidelines from public health authorities," a spokesperson said in an email to insauga.com.
"The partner and other partners who have worked in close contact are self-isolating."
Starbucks plans to reopen the location in the coming days.
As for the Indigo location, the company says it's one cafe that has been targeted for temporary closure due to a slower recovery.
"We are temporarily pausing operations of Starbucks cafes that have been slower to recover in some Indigo stores in Canada," the spokesperson said.
The company said it's working to offer affected employees employment in other stores wherever possible.
