C & M Floors – Moving

C & M Floors knocked out, moves to Neumann building in Hoboken

Well, another “biz update” here for ya’ll in Hoboken. A well-respected wood flooring shop in Hoboken got knocked out, and was forced to relocated to the Neumann Leather building downtown. C & M Floors was the victim this week. At what point does the local business bludgeoning stop?

Thanks for the attention Hoboken411 but I have had a lot of people calling me wondering what is going on, and though the attention is good the story was wrong. I am not a victim. I was not forced to move from the building but had planned to do this for many years to build a place I can own and call home. I came here from Trinidad years ago, without money or connections or a college education. America was a dream for me a place where you could be free to succeed. It wasn’t easy but by chance I landed in Hoboken and found that the people and businesses of Hoboken welcomed me and allow me to build a business from nothing. In America it is really where dreams can come true, but they don’t come true from just dreaming, you have to work hard, be respectful, be a man of your word, and find a niche where you can grow your business. I had no idea growing up in a small town in the beautiful mountain country of Trinidad that I would one day own a successful hardwood installation company in America, but that is what the USA is all about. As one of the few black owned business in Hoboken, I am proud to be part of the Hoboken community. I read all the time about how racist America is, and stories like Trayvon Martin break my heart and confuse my kids. But it is not all… Read more »

Chris, Congratulations on your hard work and success. I couldn’t be happier to see the story be wrong on this basis. Good luck to you–should I ever have need to redo my floors, I’m coming to you! rj[quote comment=”221338″]Thanks for the attention Hoboken411 but I have had a lot of people calling me wondering what is going on, and though the attention is good the story was wrong.

“At what point does the local business bludgeoning stop?”

The owner of the business decided to relocate so he could redevelop his property for economic gain. That’s how capitalism works.

Having spoken to Chris, of C&M Floors,in the past about the building, he owns it and was planning on tearing it down. Chris built a beautiful place on Monroe a few years ago and lived there for a while before selling. His plan was to do the same at this location.

Unless that changed, it will be his place and it was his building to tear down[quote comment=”221329″]I heard they are developing that building and selling them off as condo’s. ? Anyway another typical condo complex being developed. [/quote]

I used C & M at my first place and they did a good job. I just used Alpine floors and all I can say is STAY AWAY. They did a crap job – I got 3 bids and theirs was the highest and I still went with them because they came highly recommended. The missed a closet on the second stain and never sealed it and completely stained my white kitchen cabinets etc. The owner came to my place and assured me that they would remedy and never followed up. I ended up never making the final payment and fought them in collections and won. Good luck!
