REDESIGNED OAKBROOK CENTER INVITES YOU TO SEE WHAT’S BREWING
Argo Tea Brings Unique, All-natural Tea and specialTEA foods to the Oakbrook CommuniTEA
Guests can enjoy the enhanced surroundings of Oakbrook Center with a fresh, all natural experience starting August 23 with the opening of Argo Tea. Providing innovative tea experiences and signature beverages in the Center’s new glass pavilion, Argo Tea will serve up QualiTEA in a contemporary café.
“As a result of the recent renovation project, Oakbrook Center continues to elevate the shopping experience with even more exclusive offerings,” said Suzanne Beres, senior marketing manager for Oakbrook Center. “Argo Tea allows Oakbrook Center guests to relax and socialize while sipping delicious drinks.”
From one of two new glass pavilions, Argo Tea customers can appreciate the lush landscaping and modern gardens of the redesigned outdoor shopping center. The new café will feature a visually compelling, streamlined design that creates a seamless transition between the indoor and outdoor areas – reflecting Argo Tea’s commitment to conservation and all-natural ingredients.
Argo Tea promotes a healthy lifestyle which makes the new café a great fit for Oakbrook Center customers looking for great tasting drinks and diverse dietary options. Beyond tea, customers can enjoy fresh baked, hand-made SpecialTEA foods created in the café daily. Argo signature drinks and foods are inspired by passionate chefs, creative mixologists and intelligent nutritionists, and everything is made with all natural, real ingredients.
Through its commitment to excellent customer service, Argo Tea goes beyond the café to play a positive role in the community. As part of its ChariTEA program, Argo Tea plans to work with west suburban non-for-profits to donate 10 percent of proceeds from seasonal Signature Drinks.
“Argo cafes are changing the way the world experiences tea. We welcome everyone to participate in the Argo Tea story with a journey through tea sampling tables, an interactive tea wall and our spotlight on the mixologist baristas,” said Christine Gretchko, vice president of marketing for Argo Tea. “We are excited to be a part of Oakbrook Center and contribute to the local communiTEA.”
To celebrate the opening at Oakbrook Center, Argo Tea plans to host a parTEA, featuring several health, arts and entertainment events. More details will soon be available.
