Astoria froyo store Vanilla Sky has closed

Oct. 12, 2017 Staff Report

The frozen yogurt store Vanilla Sky has closed.

The store, located at 33-18 Broadway, opened in 2012 and offered frozen yogurt, coffee, cookies, muffins and croissants.

Customers had more than a dozen froyo flavors to choose from and a wide selection of toppings.

The venue was known for being kid friendly and for offering a comfortable roomy space for people to sit.

The owners posted a sign on the window that reads: “Closed. Thank you all for your business throughout the years.”

Vanilla Sky opened a second venue in Forest Hills in 2013 that is still in operation.

Rose, you are correct, I am in the Commercial Real Estate Business and it is a function of the rents, they are just too high in these high priced locations, Forest Hills, Astoria, and as Liz stated so well, the owner needs to be there working to keep the customers from coming back, based on excellent customer service, etc.

They had great froyo and good coffee as well, but the customer service was lacking. At the end of the day it was probably the rent going up to high.

Too bad it was really good, but their customer service was lacking. They just seemed like they didn’t want to be there. The owner should be there working not just let some 18 yr olds in charge. Reminds me of Pita Pan on 30th.

Forest Hills store will be closed this year due to the landlord doing a new lease with a restaurant. Very sad to lose this great mom& pop retailer
