Downtown Brooklyn’s City Point development is being plagued with delays from its retail tenants. After learning that Alamo Drafthouse won’t be opening this August, Trader Joe’s has pushed back its opening from this fall to 2017.

When Trader Joe’s opens at 445 Gold Street, it will be the chain’s second location in Brooklyn, and locals are naturally eager for it to open. However, the grocery chain did not give a reason for the delay, or when it might open next year, according to Curbed.

Trader Joe’s leased 13,700 square feet at the three-tower development. A 26,000-square-foot food hall, a Target and Century 21 are also opening there – however, Target and Century 21 have also delayed their debuts. [Curbed] Christopher Cameron
