GLEN ELLYN – The Glen Ellyn Caribou Coffee location is closing Sunday with no plans to reopen.

The coffee shop, located at 495 Roosevelt Road, will close Sunday afternoon, according to a store employee who did not provide her name.

In 2012, Minnesota-based Caribou was bought by a German holding company for about $340 million. In April the following year, it announced it would close the majority of its 66 Illinois locations, and convert more than a dozen to Peet's Coffee & Tea shops.

The Glen Ellyn location will not be converted into a Peet's, the employee said.

Overall, 80 shops were planned for closure and 88 for conversion, nationwide.
