Starbucks-owned Teavana coming to the former Silver Spurs space on Broadway
Last December, Silver Spurs got rent-hiked out of its 34-year-old home on Broadway and East Ninth Street (prompting some teary letters from children in the process).
Now comes word of a new tenant in the diner's former space — another NYC branch of Teavana, a specialty tea and tea accessory retailer.
There isn't any signage up yet to indication the shop's arrival.
In December 2012, Starbucks bought the Atlanta-based Teavana for $620 million.
The other Silver Spurs location remains open on LaGuardia Place.
