Car dies after stopping at the store

(1999 Oldsmobile Alero)
in Spring, TX on July 22, 2010
My car starts fine in the morning as I go to work; however, when I arrive near the office, I stop at Starbucks. The car hesitates to start and I sometimes have to wait a few minutes before it starts. It will start just fine going home until I stop to pick up something and it is hesitant to start.

Need to check for any Check Engine Codes, sounds like something is heating up and not working properly like a coolant temperature sensor, or an ignition component.
