At least 10 more Caribou Coffee locations in the suburbs, including ones in Northbrook and Lake Forest, are going to be closing their doors instead of being turned into Peet's Coffee and Tea, as originally planned, company officials said.

About 80 Caribou locations closed last spring after a private takeover of the Minneapolis-based company, and about 88 locations were supposed to be converted into Peet's.

But the company decided to close 10 more locations after further evaluation showed they would not be meeting their sales expectations, according to an email statement from a Peet's spokesman.

The 10 coffee shops that are set to shut down will close at various dates over the next few months.

The following locations are scheduled to be shuttered:

1.200 North LaSalle Street, Chicago, IL 60601

2.1347 Shermer Road, Northbrook, IL 60062

3.17 W 633 Roosevelt Road, Oakbrook Terrace, IL 60181

4.311 W. Monroe, 311 West Monroe Street, Chicago, IL 60606

5.423 North Harlem Avenue, Oak Park, IL 60302

6.1611 North Damen Avenue, Chicago IL 60622

7.55 W. Monroe, 55 West Monroe Street, Chicago, IL 60603

8.620-624 North Western Avenue, Lake Forest, IL 60045

9.495 West Roosevelt Road, Glen Ellyn, IL 60137

10.507 South Third Street, Geneva, IL 60134

In turn, starting in the middle of the summer, Peet's is planning to open about 20 more stores across the Chicago area and parts of southeast Wisconsin by the end of this year, according to the spokesman. Those stores will employ almost 300 people.

The last day for Northbrook's Caribou Coffee was scheduled for May 25.

Tom Poupard, Northbrook's director of development and planning services, said the village is always unhappy when a business in the community has to close.

"It came as a surprise," Poupard said. "We were happy that we survived that first cut. We didn't know there was a second round coming."

Poupard said he suspects the Starbucks location near the village's downtown area may have had an effect on Northbrook's Caribou, which has been in the community for more than two years.
