New 7-Eleven Pushed Back to November

7-Eleven - East Village 7-eleven-170-ave-a-2It looks like the East Village will have to wait an additional 6 months for 7-Eleven to open their new location on the corner of 11th Street and Avenue A.

The original opening date was scheduled for May, then it was pushed back to June, and now it has been pushed back again to November according to the 7-Eleven franchise website. Ben Shaoul recently sold the building to Jared Kushner which may have something to do with the delay and, possibly, why work has come to a screeching halt. In the past few weeks workers have removed the flimsy plywood roof and replaced the dangerous wooden gangplank that surrounds the catastrophe corner. The only activity at the site these days appears to be break-ins and lawsuits!

So in the meantime we have to look at the “neighborhood disgrace” a little longer while Ken Barnes, Margaret Chabris and pals get their Texas-based act together.
