Did you know Teavana is closing?

I got an email saying Teavana's website is closing in the middle of December.  So I did some googling and the physical stores will also be closing next spring.  This was announced in August, but I hadn't heard about it.  I don't get to Teavana all that often because it's not in my local mall, but I always enjoy looking around the store when I'm in other malls.  It's disappointing they're closing.

 

They're offering half off on their website and free shipping no minimum, in case anyone would like to purchase something.  No returns.

Yes I have known about it for a few months.  I'm going to miss them at the mall I would stop to sample their tea's.  They are part of Starbuck's and they weren't making a profit.  I'm sad that I won't be able to at least order online.

I knew the stores were closing but not the website.  That's disappointing.  I do like their teas and have purchased from both places.

When they first opened I bought ceylon vitanakande loose tea many times. It was heaven in a cup. I knew they were in trouble when they stopped carrying it and substituted everday teas in place of the exceptional ones they originally carried.  I haven't shopped there for years.

@Stargazer77 - As I love their teas, I knew this too. I will miss them. Starbucks is featuring a few at their locations. When we traveled for Thanksgiving weekend and stopped at rest stops, they had them there. I know the freestanding Starbucks also carry a few choices.

 

Starbucks is saying they will be offering the teas in grocery stores after the first of the year. We'll see. Smiley Sad

Yes.  News was released months ago.

Re: Did you know Teavana is closing?

The news about the stores closing was announced months ago, but they said the website would stay open.  I checked closely at the time to make sure they weren't going to be closing the website.  I just checked my e-mail address where I get e-mails from Teavana and had their e-mail announcing this, too.

Re: Did you know Teavana is closing?

I didn't know this, thanks!  I went to their on line site today (12/01), and it said it's closed.  So, looks like it closed before mid-Dec.
