Portland-based Black Rock Coffee Bar will lease two retail spaces formerly occupied by Tully's Coffee outlets that recently closed. The new Black Rock stores, set to open in February, will be at Northeast 78th Street and Hazel Dell Avenue, just west of Interstate 5, and at Southeast 164th Avenue and 20th Street in the Eastside Spectrum complex.
Black Rock has invited all former Tully's employees to be interviewed and considered for positions. The company says it has also secured two additional undisclosed leases in the Vancouver area, which will have drive-through service. Those stores will open this spring.
Black Rock currently has one Vancouver location at Southeast Mill Plain Boulevard and 136th Avenue.
