A new pet store is opening in Sunnyside at the former location of the OTB site at 44-05 Queens Boulevard (44th & 45th Streets).
This space has been vacant for nearly two years since New York State decided to close 50 betting parlors across the city after they went bankrupt.
The new pet shop will not be selling dogs and cats, said one of the workers at the site. It will focus on selling pet supplies. The store is expected to open in early January.
There are several pet stores in the neighborhood, from Super Doggy Wonder Kitty (4304 43rd St.), Skillman Pets and Pets Unlimited.
