43 Stores That Have Closed & You Will Never Be Able To Shop At Again
Stepping into Teavana back when it was still a thing felt like stepping into heaven. Teavana was started in 1997 by a wife and husband team, and the chain quickly grew to hundreds of locations throughout shopping malls, mostly. It sold fancy teas â€” black, green, white, herbal â€” and tea paraphernalia. But it gained popularity by offering delicious samples to the thirsty and/or curious, and the store even allowed shoppers to mix custom tea blends. Teavana eventually attracted the attention of the coffee giant Starbucks, who bought it out at the end of 2012. All Teavana stores were closed by 2017, although Starbucks itself still sells (and brews) some Teavana products in their stores.
