AT&T Wireless – Closed

AT&T Wireless closes at 605 Washington in Hoboken

A week or so ago, an AT&T Wireless store at 605 Washington Street just closed. Worry not, because the AT&T Wireless store at 106 Washington is still open.

But people ask – why are cell phone “stores” even open anymore? Don’t most people acquire their new phones online or via the phone itself? Or better yet – at crappy stores like Walmart?

Meh. Perhaps they’re re-locating to a more vibrant area of Hoboken (like uptown is curiously missing a cell phone outlet). We don’t care too much, because we believe the days for stores like this are numbered. Plus it was a “franchise” and not an official store.

Does AT&T Wireless closing here make you sad?

Since mobile devices seem to rule the lives of many, here’s a fitting business directory update for this afternoon! A new AT&T Wireless location set up in what used to be the dining area of the leading Pizza place in Hoboken, H&S Giovanni’s.

I’m pretty sure you are right there was a couple of years where this location was a nail salon. It really doesn’t seem to hold a tenant.

From the looks of the sign, this is an AT&T “authorized dealer”. This store will sell AT&T products and service just like Best Buy or Radio Shack, but they are not an actual AT&T store. The original one on Washington is the only official AT&T storefront in town!

You would think with two stores the would have better signal strength in this area. No signal in most basements in Hoboken.

I lived in a basement apartment in Hoboken for many years. Cingular had no signal until they purchased AT&T Mobile in 2005.
