A Trader Joe’s store coming to Long Island City will not open until early next year, according to a new report.

The popular grocery chain will move into a mixed-use building currently being constructed at 22-43 Jackson Ave, as first reported by the Long Island City Post in December.

The store was originally expected to open late this year, but a new report by The Real Deal states that it will now open early 2021.

The grocery store will take up a 17,000 square-foot ground floor space of the 11 story, 70-unit building called the Prime Building, designed by SRA Architecture + Engineering and developed by Circle F.

The Long Island City store will be the second Trader Joe’s location in Queens, as there is one in Rego Park.

The California-based chain that has 500 stores across the U.S., has taken New York City by storm since it opened its first store in the Big Apple in 2006.

The company now has 13 locations in the boroughs, including in neighborhoods such as Union Square, Soho, Chelsea, Midtown East, Brooklyn Heights and the Upper West Side.

Trader Joe’s is known for its quality products at affordable prices. It sells its own label products instead of name brands at lower costs.

Don’t tell Michael Gianaris he’ll want Trader Joe to walk away and KeyFood to take over the site and open up shop.

3 men sought for armed robbery in East Elmhurst home invasion near LaGuardia Airport: NYPD

The NYPD is looking for three men who allegedly robbed an East Elmhurst man of tens of thousands of dollars during a home invasion early Monday morning.

Police from the 115th Precinct in Jackson Heights responded to a 911 call of an armed robbery at a townhouse located at 108-09 Ditmars Blvd. near 29th Avenue just south of LaGuardia Airport.
The victim had pulled up in front of his home just before 2 a.m. when he was approached by three suspects. One of them pulled out a firearm and forced him inside the townhouse where they stole around $30,000 in cash and a safe that contained an unspecified amount of jewelry, before exiting and driving off in a silver four-door SUV, police said.
