The Sunnyside business center around 46th and Greenpoint Avenue is undergoing a revamp.
The area, which has arguably looked a little run down, is in the midst of looking a whole lot better.
Rite Aid, which as a corporation is struggling to stay afloat, has started to merge its two stores on Greenpoint Ave.
It officially closed its corner store yesterday (the Rite Aid next door will remain open), which will reopen as part of the combined store.
Meanwhile, Key Food is living up to its long-held promise to renovate its supermarket. It has demolished the empty building at the back of the store, which will be incorporated into the existing space. The revamp is expected to be completed by October.
This move follows Associated’s upgrade on 44th and Greenpoint Ave. It has expanded its existing space to include the corner lot and has erected vibrant blue awnings.
At the same time, Bank of America has completed its branch store, which was initially planned to open at the end of March. The timing of its official opening is not known at this time.
