Lots of empty storefronts up for sale!
By Ilija Sekulovski
Formerly a Malaysian food spot, Savory Cafe’s doors have closed for good. Located at 47-12 30th Ave, the cafe is in a pretty high traffic area. We wonder what happened! The current asking price is a whopping $150,000 for 1,500 sq. feet – $100 a foot.
Located smack dab in the middle of Broadway at 35-19, 1-800-Flowers has closed their doors as well – and is asking for $10,000 per month for 2,000 sq. feet. That’s a hefty sum – but for such a prime location, slightly understandable. We’re kind of glad, as we’ve found locally owned florists tend to care more about making us Astorians happy, and 1-800-Flowers with their 1.5 Yelp rating apparently…did not.
Any thoughts on what should open? What do you think Astoria is lacking? Where have you guys seen an empty storefront? Snap a picture!
