When was the last time you made it out to the Boise Towne Square Mall? There's a lot of change happening inside!

J. Crew Closes, Spot Doesn't Stay Vacant Long

If you were a J. Crew shopper, you might be surprised to find out their store at Boise Towne Square is gone.  According to our friend Don at Boise Dev, there's already something new occupying the store front.  The retailer replaced their full-price J. Crew store with a J. Crew Mercantile.  So what's the difference between the new store and the old store?

The Mercantile version of the store has some looks that are only available at the cheaper J. Crew Factory stores.  Basically, the Mercantile and Factory stores are the same, except one chain is located malls.

So what if you bought a new skirt or blouse for you upcoming job interview from J. Crew only to take it home and realize it doesn't fit? The new location will accept original J. Crew store returns until the end of next month.

I went to college near a J. Crew Factory store and that's the only time I could actually afford anything J. Crew! I'm excited to see what the new store has on their racks.

Teavana Closing All Locations

Love Teavana's Mint Majesty or Oprah Cinnamon tea? The only place you'll be able to find it from now on will be at Starbucks stores.  The coffee giant owns 379 Teavana stores and plans to close all of them...including the location at Boise Towne Square  According to CNN Money, the shops will close by next spring.  So what happens to the employees at our Treasure Valley location? Starbucks would love to see their job applications on the counter at nearby Starbucks. There is currently a Starbucks location inside the mall and one just across from it on Franklin Road.
