Costa Coffee is set to close and open stores across the UK

Costa Coffee will close a branch for good in February 2024.

This follows branches that have closed, and opened, this year.

The Bruntsfield Place location in Edinburgh will cease trading on February 14, 2024.

Coffee fans can visit nearby Costa locations after that date.

​The coffee chain has made a push in drive-thru locations 


The popular British chain has closed locations already this year, including North Street, Brighton, Oakham Church Street, East Midlands, Church Street Malvern and West Bridgford.

It's not all bad news for fans of the coffee chain, however.

Locations have shut for refurbishments and to make way for new stores.

The retailer continues to back the UK with more stores opening across the country.

Last month, Costa Coffee opened branches inside Tesco stores in Chichester Fishbourne and Ashford Crooksfoot.

It has also pushed for more drive-thru coffee shops so Britons can get their coffee fix on the go.

It opened its 300th drive-thru last year and shared plans to open more than 500 drive-thru stores by 2025.

A Costa Coffee spokesperson told GB News: “We can confirm that our Costa Coffee store on Bruntsfield Place will close its doors for trade on the 14th of February 2024.

"We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Customers can continue to enjoy their favourite Costa coffee at our nearby store on Morningside Road, or to find your nearest store, click here:”

Costa Coffee is not the only retailer that has opened and closed branches recently.
