Press Release – March 2013
New Store Opening – New Banner
Murchie’s Fine Tea
1501 West Broadway, Vancouver
As part of its ongoing growth and expansion strategy, Murchie’s Tea & Coffee is proud to announce that it has opened its sixth retail store in the heart of the vibrant South Granville shopping district.
Just over five years ago, the beloved local icon was facing bankruptcy, but since then has been on a steady path of revitalization to restore itself to its former glory.
“This will be the first of many store openings we have planned for the near future” says Grant Kuebler, Managing Director of Murchie’s Tea and Coffee (2007) Ltd. “We’re proud of the support we’ve received from our loyal customers that has allowed Murchie’s to regain its position within the marketplace and will continue our commitment to put quality and customer service first.”
Murchie’s Tea & Coffee has a rich history of providing the best quality tea and coffee the industry has to offer. In our newest retail location, we will continue this tradition with the new banner, Murchie’s Fine Tea which focuses on providing only the finest tea – both loose and packaged in tea bags.
We’ve built on the traditional blends, which are exceptional, and added new products like herbal infusions to complement the wide assortment of single origin teas. From the highest quality tea, to knowledgeable, friendly and informed staff, our goal is to provide the best tea experience to our customers.
In store, you will find an array of fine china and accessories as well as a selection of other offerings, such as coffee, gift baskets, preserves and biscotti.
The grand opening event will run from April 4th to April 7th, 2013 and will include a celebration sale, tea tastings and product giveaways.
