Most stores will likely convert to Peet's Coffee and Tea, the company Caribou parent company Joh. A. Benckiser Group acquired earlier this year from the for $1 billion.

Peet’s Coffee was founded in Berkeley, CA, and is now headquartered in Emeryville, CA. The majority of its stores are located in California, but also has locations in Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts, Oregon and Washington state.

Although a local manager confirmed that "most stores in the area will become Peet's," no specifics on which ones and when is available.
