Jennifer Lopez's flagship Viva Movil cellphone store closes in Brooklyn

Jennifer Lopez's flagship cellphone shop in Brooklyn has folded.

 

"Jenny from the Block" picked a prime spot for her boutique Viva Movil, located right across from Barclays Center in Prospect Heights, but it wasn't enough to keep business booming. 

 

Reports say the phone store has been unable to meet "financial expectations." News 12 The Bronx was there when J. Lo herself visited the borough to announce the opening a year ago. 

 

There are still other Viva Movil stores left around the city, including one in the Bronx, but there is no word yet on their fate. Officials say they plan to evaluate each location.
