Viva Movil store across from Barclays Center closes; maybe it will become a coffee joint

There's a prominent empty storefront right across from the Barclays Center: the Viva Movil store at Flatbush Avenue and Pacific Street has closed. Betabeat reported 8/18/14:
It was only a year ago that Jennifer Lopez marched into Brooklyn and heralded a new era of being ripped off by your cell phone provider. Dubbed Viva Movil, it’s a joint venture between the American Idol judge and Verizon Mobile to lure Latino shoppers to the brand. But it looks like its customers have hung up on it.
Last week, we noticed that the shop on Flatbush Avenue across from the Barclays Center shuttered.
And Brownstoner followed up with Jennifer Lopez-Sponsored Viva Movil Store Closes on Flatbush Avenue. CNET reported 7/5/14 that employees in Brooklyn acknowledged a disconnect with customers; one said, "More than one customer has come in asking for coffee."

Which means it may well become a food or drink establishment.
