The Campus Plaza Starbucks on El Cajon Boulevard was the second Starbucks to open in San Diego. It's scheduled to close later this year, however.
"There's a lot of customers that want to see it kept open," organizer Susan Hopps-Tatum said. "We've got over 1,800 signatures on a petition so far, and we just want it to be a win-win situation."
In an effort to save it, local customers organized a Save Our Starbucks event. Supporters have united with phone calls, e-mails and signatures on a petition asking the company for some time to increase business.
