Downtown Brooklyn will have a longer wait to get another Trader Joe’s, according to their website which was quietly adjusted from Summer 2016 opening to an undisclosed date in 2017. The popular market’s second Brooklyn outpost is slated to be part of the City Point development on Fulton Street and Flatbush Avenue.

The news comes after last Wednesday’s announcement by Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, saying they would not open its doors at 445 Gold Street in August as planned.

According to DNAinfo, a Trader Joe’s spokeswoman said the grocery chain had been held up by “construction delays,” but she did not specify when in 2017 the store would open.

Trader Joe’s leased 13,700 square feet on the concourse level of the development, which is located next to to the 26,000 square foot subterranean food market, DeKalb Market Hall.

According to Curbed New York, Target and Century 21 have also delayed their Summer 2016 City Point openings with no further information. The website for DeKalb Market Hall still lists a Fall opening

Residents will continue to have to trek just a few blocks more for the time being to the Trader Joe’s at 130 Court Street at Atlantic Avenue. Their website states they “will announce a grand opening date as soon as it comes available. Stay tuned!”

And stay tuned we shall.
