The history of Sugar Land's Family-Oriented Coffee Hang Out Goes Down:(
Sugar Land's first Starbucks Coffee Company, Store 6211, closes its doors for good on National Mourning Day, 9-11-07. What a sad site to see, as we (fellow partners and customers) camped out to watch the letters come down. An average of 30 minutes per letter and many tears to accompany the time. The history of the store: Opened in 1993 and adopted a family-type atmosphere for all partners and customers. Barnes and Nobles Bookstore shared a doorway with the store until October of 2006. Corporate headquarters decided to close the store just weeks before 9-11-07 and left the area devastated. This photo was taken on 9-11-07, the last day the store was opened.
