This just in from reader Maureen: “The Peetniks in town, myself included, are going to be really bummed when Peet’s Coffee downtown [at 1131 State Street] closes next Friday, which an employee told me yesterday was going to happen. The employee didn’t know the reason for the closure but is hoping to transfer to uptown Peet’s, which is apparently going to stay open. ” I called and confirmed the news. The location at 3905 State Street will be open for business as usual. Peet’s downtown opened in November 2008.
