Yet Another CBTL Gone?

I’ve been watching the mass extinction of The Westside’s beloved Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.  It appears yet another one may have bitten the dust.  The popular CBTL at 2901 Main St. in Santa Monica appears to be closed.  While it doesn’t have the poster announcing the closure as the other ones have had, the windows are papered over and the equipment has been removed.  What is going on?
