The Starbucks at Battlefield Mall has closed shop.
Michael Martin, general manager of the mall, confirmed the closure via email.
"There is a plan for the space, and we hope to announce that very soon," he said.
Starbucks was located adjacent to Coach and JCPenney stores on the east side of the mall.
Officials with the coffee chain could not be reached for comment by deadline.
