A Verizon store will open on 46th Street just under the Sunnyside arch later this month.
The cell phone store is currently redecorating the space at 45-06 46th St., which was previously occupied by the pop up vintage shop, Violet’s Volition and Bliss.
Eugene Choe, the owner of the upcoming Verizon shop, said he expects to open in two weeks time.
Choe, 50, is also the owner of the current Verizon authorized retailer store around the corner at 45-18 Queens Blvd., which opened more than 10 years ago.
“It’s too small over here,” Choe said about the Queens Boulevard location. “Over there its twice as big. It’s a visible area.”
Choe plans on turning the Verizon store on Queens Boulevard into a cell phone and tablet repair and accessories shop. He said it would take another month to make the changes.
