Another chain store that was scheduled to open in downtown Brooklyn’s City Point development has jumped on the push-back bandwagon. After learning that Alamo Drafthouse wouldn’t be debuting in August as anticipated, it’s now been revealed that Trader Joe’s, scheduled to open their second Brooklyn location at 445 Gold Street this fall, won’t be opening until 2017 (h/t Gothamist).
The packaged-product grocery brand quietly adjusted the opening date information on its website, not citing any reasons for the delay. The site doesn’t even give any hints as to when in 2017 we can expect to see the store open, so we’ll just have to stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
Trader Joe’s leased a 13,700-square-foot space within the three-tower development. It will be accompanied by a 26,000-square-foot food hall that will join City Point in addition to a Target and Century 21 (who, coincidentally, both have also delayed their anticipated Summer 2016 openings).
