Teavana closes ahead of conversion into a Starbucks on Broadway

[Reader-submitted photo]

As expected, the Starbucks-owned Teavana has closed on Broadway and East Ninth Street.

Back in January, Starbucks announced that it will convert the three Teavana tea bar locations in New York into Starbucks stores by the end of April.

While the Teavana tea bars are closing, Starbucks will continue on with the nearly 350 Teavana retail outlets across the country

The Broadway-and-East-Ninth-Street space previously housed Silver Spurs, the diner that closed in December 2013 after 34 years in business.

The pied piper of expensive beverages couldn't get their followers to drink tea.

Another fucking Starbucks? There is a huge Starfuck's,(oh excuse me) A Starbuck's on Astor, literally right around the corner. Does this chain need to dominate our city and the coffee house culture? BS.

Serves em right for trying to open an overpriced tea shop. This is an overpriced coffee city. Everyone knows that.
