Forty five of the shuttered DAVID's Tea locations, including the one in Guelph's Stone Road Mall, will be reopened under the brand T. Kettle.
The Guelph store will reopen on Sunday, Nov. 1, says a news release.
A total of 18 DAVID's Tea locations remain open.
Six of the new stores will reopen in the U.S., the rest across Canada.
Entrepreneur and businessman Doug Putman is behind the move
“We believe that loose-leaf tea is poised for a similar comeback, and we’re merging our expertise in retail operations with our passion for tea to bring T. Kettle to cities across Canada and the US.," Putman said in the release.
T. Kettle stores will feature certified vegan, kosher, organic blends, with all products ethically sourced and sustainable, the release said.
