Peet’s to close Downtown, Gahanna coffee shops
Peet’s Coffee and Tea plans to close two Columbus locations and five other stores in Ohio. The California-based coffee chain popped up across the Midwest and East Coast in 2013, with plans for 90 new locations. Some of them did not meet sales expectations. “After nearly a one-year assessment of the Ohio and Michigan markets, we've decided to focus on our top-performing locations and reduce our scale in these areas,” said Peet’s spokeswoman Amy Lester.
