Sherman Avenue Starbucks to close Tuesday and Wednesday

Jia You, City Editor

The Starbucks in downtown Evanston will be closed Tuesday and Wednesday in preparation for its relocation steps away.

The coffee shop, which has been in business for 21 years at 1726B Sherman Ave., will re-open Thursday at a larger space less than a block away, 1734 Sherman Ave. The new location, a LEED-certified store featuring brick walls and vintage maple flooring, will be able to accommodate more than 90 customers, according to the business association Downtown Evanston.

Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl and Ald. Judy Fiske (1st) will attend a grand re-opening 5-7 p.m. Friday.
