There’s plenty of frozen yogurt stores in Park Slope, but one more is coming this week to Seventh Avenue and Third Street.
Yogurtland, which is advertising flavors like Black Forest Cake, Boysenberry Tart, Amaretto Cookies and Sticky Toffee Pudding on its Facebook page, will open by Friday, according to the contractor in charge of construction in the corner space that used to be Sette.
“This place will be open at the end of the week, if everything gets done,” Tony Tichmer said, who is the contractor on site.
The inside of the shop is a combination of green mosaic glass tile on the side wall, frosted ceramic tile on the back wall and porcelain tile on the floor.
The front façade will be brown stucco, which was nearly complete over the weekend.
Tichmer, whose men were working quickly last week with all the tile almost laid in place, is confident that his part of the job will not hold up the grand opening come later this week.
“So long as they pass all their inspections, we’ll be open,” he said.
This vacant space has been a hotbed for rumors on what would fill it for months, like another Union Market, a doctor’s office or even a mystery restaurant owned by “a successful group from the neighborhood,” as the building owner said at one point.
When the news broke that this space would become Yogurtland, 83 percent of our readers who voted said that they did not think a frozen yogurt chain would be a good use of space.
What do you think now? With Yogomonster closed further up Seventh Avenue, does Pinkberry need some competition? Let us know in the comments section below.
