Judging by the graphics on the MetroStop website, perhaps the fact that I was disputing the rumor was wrong?
Or do they just “throw in” businesses to lure customers in? Does anyone have any inside information to how such renderings become reality? Are there legal implications for showing a branded Starbucks location in an artists rendition if it’s not going to happen?
Far from “breaking news,” but a few folks emailed Hoboken411 about some fruity rumors going around that one (maybe two) more Starbucks are coming to Hoboken…
As I mentioned in a previous post today about “chain” stores ruining the city street-scape, this would just be another nail in the coffin for local businesses.
The rumors indicate that one may be coming to 4th and Washington Streets, and another at “90 Congress” (which is in Jersey City Heights, actually). The rumor said that it may be coming to the Metrostop building near the 9th St. Light Rail, but an Amelia’s Bistro is slated to go there, the last I heard. Unless the recent Real Estate problems cause them to back out…
Honestly, I’ve never like their over-priced low-quality coffee, and could care less one way or another. It’d be nice to see some interesting new businesses once and a while.
Now that you’re done reading this, file under: “Big Whoop.”
