Teavana in The Empire Mall is closing Monday, Jan. 15.
All merchandise has been marked at a 75 percent discount.
Starbucks Inc. announced in July 2017 that it was closing its 379 retail tea shops.
Simon Property Group, the owner of The Empire Mall, filed a breach of covenant lawsuit against Starbucks for attempting to close more than 75 stores in its properties. An Indiana judge granted a temporary injunction requiring the stores to remain open until a trial is held. According to the Indianapolis Business Journal, the Indiana Supreme Court has agreed to hear an appeal of that injunction.
