DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — The opening of Trader Joe's at the massive new City Point development has been pushed to next year, the store announced. 

The grocery chain, originally slated to open at at 1 DeKalb Ave. this fall, has been held up due to "construction delays," a Trader Joe's spokeswoman said.

The spokeswoman did not specify when in 2017 the outpost would open.

“We will announce a grand opening date as soon as it comes available. Stay tuned!” read an announcement on the Trader Joe’s website

The delay, first reported by Gothamist, marks the second City Point opening that’s been pushed back. 

Last week, Austin-based theater chain Alamo Drafthouse announced it would not be opening in August as planned

As of Monday, the City Point website still listed fall 2016 as the opening date for Trader Joe’s and Alamo Drafthouse, along with Target and Century 21. The website said Target and Century 21 will open this fall.

City Point’s 26,000-square-foot food hall, DeKalb Market Hall, is also slated to open this fall, according to its website. 

Representatives for City Point did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
