The Office – bids farewell to Hoboken

The Office – next Hoboken victim; moving to Jersey City

Well. the business “climate” in Hoboken has claimed yet another victim. This time it’s The Office over at 306 Washington Street.

The Office moves from Hoboken to Jersey City

Jersey City boasts business-friendly environment compared to Hoboken

Next month, The Office is moving to a similar-sized space smack-dab in the middle of Jersey City (Journal Square) for less than half the rent they’re paying now. Wow!

That, along with a not-so-ideal vibe here in Hoboken (Office Depot down the street, nagging customers whining about $20 invitation prints, and $0.25 copies), they made the choice to move to a locale that better suits their core business.

Gone will be the “internet cafe” which hogged precious floor space, and their focus will be primarily the business-to-business print and collateral side. They’ll still have a store-front, but without the high-overhead – low-profit offerings. It’s too bad, but as a business owner, you need to make tough decisions to maintain viability.

Doesn’t this make you sad? At this rate – Hoboken may and will become a strip-mall with some bars and restaurants, Realtors and parking enforcement officers.

    Has anyone ever had an issues here? I sent a fed ex package several weeks ago only to find out it never made it. Unfortunately, I threw away the tracking information. I know big mistake on my part. Trust me Ive learned my lesson. Meanwhile Fed ex says that no package ever left there on the date I dropped it off to the location I sent it to or that week. This store claims they dont have it nor do they keep any records because as the gentleman on the phone told me they are not required to since they really arent fed ex but “a glorified mail box.”

    I really find this lack of serivce horrible and I will never send a package from this establishment again. Just a warning to those who use this place KEEP YOUR TRACKING SHEET!

    Also do not get your wedding cards printed with the Office. My good friend had a horrible experience with them.

    1. Cards were over a month late.
    2. Cards were not even what she ordered.
    3. Manager was rude and only offered a 10% discount.
    4. Said she could not have cards until she paid everything up.

    After the ordeal they put her thru, she should have the cards for free.

    The Office does not care about customer service. Do not use them. 😥

    Agree that going to The Office for wedding invitations would be like getting the tuxedos at the Salvation Army.

    Unfortunately, they remind me of Kinko’s before FedEx bought them and straightened them out. They seem to take on and rush too many small tasks to be concerned with quality.

    These guys used their last business card template before making a copy of it. They didn’t even have a digital master to refer to. And they have an attitude. I won’t be back.

    Yeah this place is bad – customer service is unhelpful and sloooooooow. Use the Kinkos on River St. instead.

    Hey dude, you don’t got to Home Depot for a Chicken Dinner!

    I used them before, they are real slow and some employee’s have an attitude problem. One guy there can tell you the chemical composition of an orange, but can’t figure out how to use a copy machine!

    😮

    I went to Mimosa Digital to get wedding programs printed (my wife went actually). I thought I’d give a local establishment some business rather than going to a Big Box store like Staples. So we formatted our programs in Microsoft Word, chose the font, and the color of the font. Brought the file in on a USB drive and gave it to them. When she picked them up, instead of a rusty orange color they were bright red. The guy said that she never stated that the color was important…ok, he’s right, but hello, we’re at a place that prints items…wouldn’t you think color might be of some importance…and it’s for a wedding…we all know how brides are in this society!

    well anyways, she made the mistake of paying for the remaining balance (had to leave a deposit) because the guy talked her into thinking that it was her fault – she shouldn’t have paid. But he went into this long explanation on how Microsoft Word colors don’t always print correctly and if color was important he would have had to professionally design the programs and it would have cost more and bla bla bla….

    so, we took the flash drive over to staples, the guy had a good laugh at our story, and printed the programs, correct color….for about $10 total less than what Mimosa charged us!

    so much for trying to support the local little guy!

    This place is awful. Horrible customer service, they promised that my project would be done in 2 weeks… it’s been over a month! The people in charge don’t care. I try and support local business but they make it VERY hard.

    Didn’t someone from 411 say the got pissed off about the employyee’s eating a giant Blimpie in here while they needed help a few eeks ago? 8)

    That was GameStop

    I went to this place about six months ago and had a good experience. I had to print a poster, scan something and make color copies. It all turned out great. The poster they printed looked awesome.

    Blame it on the all-time low ratings of paper?

    I’m sorry to see The Office go. I’ve used them often for a variety of projects and they were always very professional and the quality of their work is outstanding. I guess we’ll see another Realtor move into the space since it’s too small for a bar. I honestly believe that it’s only a matter of time when the kids moving into Hoboken realize that they are being fleeced and start renting or buying in other towns. Eventually every bubble will burst and I fear that the Hoboken bubble is next.

  16. TheGreenMan says:

    The demand for these kind of places is way, way down. We almost never print anything out anymore. I wouldn’t buy stock in Kinko’s either.

    It happens. Tons of individual businesses in town means that some close, some open.
