Starbucks will close all Teavana locations, including 3 in Pittsburgh area

All of the stores will close over the coming year, with the majority closing by next spring, Starbucks said.

But the business still wasn't doing well enough for Starbucks to keep it going.

Starbucks announced Thursday that it will be shuttering all locations of Teavana, a tea-centric shop that now boasts 379 locations throughout the country. The 3,300 employees affected by the closures have been encouraged to apply for positions at Starbucks stores.

Starbucks acquired Teavana Holdings for $620 million in late 2012. "Slowing growth is suggestive of maturation, interesting as Starbucks estimates it has slightly over 13 million My Starbucks Rewards members out of approximately 75 million available customers". Both deals are expected to close by early next year.

"We felt it was an appropriate time to take the decision and begin shutting down those stores", Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson told the Associated Press.

Bloomberg reports that a 2014 study estimated there were 15,500 trans people now serving in the U.S. military. Some US media outlets have questioned the spending justification.

The coffee giant has finally realized what many already knew: Americans don't like tea all that much.

Teavana, we hardly knew ye. The majority of brick and mortar Teavana stores are located inside of these former consumer hotspots, so it's no wonder Starbucks Corporation has chose to do away with the flailing company. "Through our partnership with Anheuser-Busch, we have extended the Teavana brand into a ready-to-drink platform that will create even greater brand awareness and fuel further growth".

While Argo Tea initially anxious, Starbucks' experiment failed.

Teavana shops in Upstate New York are located at Destiny USA in Syracuse, the Eastview Mall in Victor, Walden Galleria in Buffalo, Boulevard Mall in Amherst, Crossgates Mall in Albany and the Poughkeepsie Galleria.
