Local Business Bailout Specials!

Hoboken businesses get creative

You know what I love? When local businesses can actually “admit” that the economy has slowed down (in not so many words).

We all know that most businesses in Hoboken (and the rest of the country) are seeing lower numbers than usual, and are either offering bigger discounts during their sales – or in Mario’s Classic Pizza case – jumping on the bailout bandwagon, and creatively offering specials that people can relate to.

You can purchase a $30 gift card at Mario’s Pizza for $20. Brilliant, really! It’s essentially a 33% discount, but sounds much more attractive when packaged in terms that are very much relevant to most individuals. Great idea, Mario!

What businesses should follow suit?

Re 14.: Try “Nick the Pick.” m: 201.208.8518. He’s a sound engineer/great guitar player (hence the moniker) & does computer work at fair prices. He’s a smart guy & a good soul.
If he can’t help you, he can probably suggest someone. And then there’s always TekServe, on 23rd, near the PATH station.

Not really on topic but does anyone know a Mac tech in town? I need some simple help with an Imac & a MacBook ( basically moving all photos…100GBs….to an external drive I can access all the time) and setting up regular back-ups as well on another external disk and also installing Leopard. Thanks.
