Save the Westlink Starbucks

An online and paper petition campaign has been mounted to save the Westlink Starbucks location, one of 600 marked for closing by the struggling gourmet coffee chain.

Paper petitions asking the company to spare the store, which opened on May 23, are available at Westlink retailers.

And an online petition is available at www.ipetitions.com/petition/westlinkstarbucks.

Participants are asked to sign either the paper or online petitions, but not both. The drive is being coordinated by Benchmark Real Estate Group, property managers for Westlink Shopping Center.
