Are they/the store mentioned in any other place besides Pemulis getting the DMZ and the impaling?

I mean, it's a fairly well-known drug den (in the novel), amongst those into those sorts of things. Can't say if it will be mentioned more in the book (just like the snake-owning drug-dealer in the Allston trailer), but on p. 303, Poor Tony notes that he's on his way there (before having his stroke):
Quote:
...and lit out in last-ditch desperation for Cambridge's Inman Square, for the sinister and duplicitous Antitoi brothers, their Glass-Entertainment-'N-Notions-fronted operations center he'd long ago vowed never again to darken the door of but now figured to be his place of very last resort, the Antitois, Canadians of the Quebec subgenus, sinister and duplicitous but when it came down to it rather hapless political insurgents he'd twice availed of services through the offices of Lolasister...

Pages 480-489 see us getting an in depth look into Antitoi's store before him and his "brother" get demapped by the A.F.R.

I was wrong here the store is called Antitoi's but I confused him for Lucien

I am glad you asked this question, since if there are any other prior mentions, I'd be psyched to know what they are.

I would count this as a mention (a longer account is at my blog post on the Entertainment Master) - Quoting myself:

Quote:
Joelle, we might recall, also paused at this untended display (see p. 223f.), giving us a much fuller description of the 2-D cardboardish dispenser: weirdly, an A.F.R.-type wheelchair-sat and lap-blanketed figure, whose face is contorted with terrible joy or ecastasy or a seizure. In fact, Joelle also sees the police removing the flag from the Colonel Shaw statue, indicating that she and Bertraund were probably there at nearly the same moment!
