The Java Edge on the corner of Valencia and Nexus roads in Rita Ranch is no more, another casualty of tough economic times.
From an e-mail announcing the closure:
This week we reluctantly had to consolidate two of our locations together in order to make better use of our resources. Our Rita Ranch location at Nexus and Valencia has merged with our Bear Canyon location. Thank you all for the good times we shared at Rita, we greatly appreciate the support we had from the community and invite you all to come to Bear Canyon and visit with your favorite baristas. All gift certificates, coupons you received from Rita Ranch are of course redeemable at any of our other locations.
The Bear Canyon location recently added a bar component, and they hold quite a few events and tastings there. There’s a little bit more about that here.
