CHANGSHA, China, June 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Urban Tea Inc. (the "Company," "we" or "Urban Tea") (NASDAQ: MYT), a premier retailer of specialty teas and baked goods headquartered in Hunan, China, announced today that the Company has made significant progress in the renovation of its first overseas store in New York City. The store named "Meno" is expected to have a trial opening on July 15th, 2020, and a grand opening in August, assuming New York City will reopen as currently scheduled.
The store is located at 218 Thompson Street, near Washington Square Park and the New York University campus in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of lower Manhattan, which is one of the city's most vibrant and popular neighborhoods. The design of the store is expected to create a quintessential hang-out spot for the customers to enjoy its specialty tea drinks. As New York continues to reopen, we have and will continue to closely follow state and city guidelines in the renovation of Meno. We will open the tea house with social distancing measures and other sanitary procedures in place. Additionally, all staff will be screened for the coronavirus before shifts, wear masks and gloves, as well as practice proper handwashing and food safety protocols. The full menu will be served with take-out and online order store pick up. Limited dine-in service will be offered to customers.
Long Yi, Chief Executive Officer of Urban Tea, commented: "We are excited about our plan to open our first overseas store Meno in NYC during the summer. This marks the first milestone in our long-term overseas operation plan. Although Meno was initially planned to be opened in early 2020, the evolving COVID-19 situation has delayed our plans. Although opening a new store during a pandemic is challenging and we understand that it may take some time to ramp up the business during this time of uncertainty, our team has been working tirelessly to make this happen and to continue looking towards the future."
