Time Warner Cable Opening Retail Store At Old Lefkos Pyrgos Spot

Time Warner Cable will absorb the former Lefkos Pyrgos bakery and neighboring stores to open a new retail location.

Located at 31-01 23rd Ave., the new Time Warner Cable store will be “a smaller version” of the company’s flagship store in Manhattan’s Flatiron district, a spokesperson said.

Builders are already at work at the site of the nearly 4,000 square-foot store, which stretches from the old bakery into space formerly occupied by the Blooming Company, Lucky 7 Internet Café and Astron Gift Shop along 31st Street.

According to the spokesperson, customers will be able to buy cable boxes, conduct Internet speed tests and customize service packages, among other products and services.

The Time Warner Cable store is slated for a soft-open mid-September.

Lefkos Pyrgos, a Greek café and bakery, sat on the corner of 23rd Avenue and 31st Street for nearly 40 years.

According to a source in the real estate industry, the bakery’s owners are examining the possibility of relocating within Astoria.

We don’t need a shitty ass time warner cable! The service suck’s! We always get some dumb stores on ditmars. Hope they go out of business really quick!

Get out of Astoria!

As shitty as having a TWC store it’s actually kind of convenient. The reason is when the Midwestern hand holding homo hipsters cancel their TWC because all the Midwestern hand holding homo hipsters are too cool for cable they need to physically return their items and the closest TWC stores and all the stores are in The city or in Brooklyn.

Naw, we dont have time for the time warner store. We will just shove our cable boxes up your prejudice a** and then go home and count our “hipster” money why you cry about rising rents. Can’t wait till People like you (very few of you left) move away from Astoria which is known to be to be of the most diverse areas in the country.

Maybe you shouldn’t use bigoted slurs to prove your point because it really makes you lose credibility.

If it was going to be an Apple store I could almost understand, but is there a market for a Time Warner Retail store?

Here what we really need in the hood.

1) A gay bath house
2) A Turkish bath house
3) A Russian bath house
4) A Korean bath house

Anything else is redundant
