September opening for the 2nd Avenue Tompkins Square Bagels zapped by an electrical issue

Christopher Pugliese hoped to have the Second Avenue location of Tompkins Square Bagels open by the end of this month.

Unfortunately, the building's main power line had other ideas.

Yesterday, Con Ed arrived to dig up the street and sidewalk in front of the storefront at 184 Second Ave. between 11th Street and 12th Street...

"There's an electrical problem with the main line to the building. Nothing to do with my work," Pugliese said last evening. "However, they will need to dig up my space to replace it. Hopefully it's quick."

He's now shooting for an Oct. 15 opening.

"Dig up my place to replace it"...meaning inside the store? If so, that would seem to suck. Hopefully it actually only takes a few weeks.

It's like the opening of Bob's Burgers!

In a press release, Con Ed blamed "the enormous power demands of bagel toasters."

The delays poor Chris has had to undergo, NONE of which were any fault of his... hang in there! Can't wait for the new store to be open!
