Starbucks is reportedly doing away with its Teavana tea bar concept, and is closing its three Manhattan locations, including the one on Broadway at East Ninth Street.
And what will replace Teavana? Per BuzzFeed, who first reported on this:
The company announced on Friday that it will convert the three Teavana tea bar locations in New York into Starbucks stores by the end of April.
For 34 years, the corner space here was home to Silver Spurs, the diner that closed in December 2013.
As for Teavana, Starbucks bought the Atlanta-based company for $620 million in December 2012. While the Teavana tea bars are closing, Starbucks will continue on with the nearly 350 Teavana retail outlets across the country.
