The Dumb Starbucks parody store in Los Feliz that caused a spectacle before it was shut down by county health officials for operating without the proper permit isn't expected to reopen any time soon.
Little more than three days after quietly opening, Nathan Fielder -- whose "Nathan for You" show airs on Comedy Central -- addressed the growing buzz Monday and revealed he was behind the parody during a news conference.
At a meeting to address the issue Tuesday, representatives for the parody store said they had no plans to apply for a health permit, a spokesman for the public health department said.
That means Dumb Starbucks cannot reopen as it was. And if public health officials receive complaints that the store has started selling again, the department spokesman said "we will go down and investigate further."
