Starbucks & Malones close at Cornwall & Yew


Starbucks may be closing 600 locations across the United States but they’re still going strong in Vancouver. So much so that Kitsilano’s busiest location at Cornwall & Yew is closed for the next 12 days to undergo an extreme makeover.

The big news on the corner is that Malones will be permanently shutting down – the street signage says “Seven Weeks until Closing Party”. Rumour on the street is that Joeys will be the anchor tenant of the new building planned for that plum piece of real estate.

    Joey’s? Great – a turd replaced by crap. A sure-fire surrey/meathead/hoochi-mama magnet. Way to go, “world class city.” Put another feather in your ego-packed cap, Vancouver.

    Heard a rumour that it is going to be Earl’s? Same owners as Joey’s so either way would be kind of the same. Malones will be missed for their notalgia but not for the food!
