A kitchen and hardware store located at 47-17 5th Street is expected to open next month.
Ovidio Teja, the owner of Kitchen Plus More, is just waiting on Con Ed approval before he can open.
Taja, who has worked as the general manager at Food Cellar since it opened in 2008, said that he decided to open a kitchen/hardware store since so many grocery store customers would complain that there wasn’t such a store in Hunters Point.
The 2,500 square foot store will sell “anything you can image for the home,” Teja said, whether it be bed sheets or screwdrivers.
The store is currently packed with pots & pans, plumbing items, paint, ironing boards, kitchen appliances to glassware. He said that customers will also be able to get their keys cut at the store too.
He said that anything people can get at Home Depot they will be able to get at his store.
In addition, Urban Market, the gourmet store located at 2-14 50th Avenue, is expected to open during the first week of November, the general manager said today.
