Pieces of Hoboken – Bridge Boutique
They’re not doomed after all. They’ve just broken franchise ties with Pieces of Hoboken. Same owners.
The new store “Bridge Boutique” was supposed to open yesterday, but as always, things get delayed. The owner said they’ll carry most of the same items, similar styles and so on. Should be open today. The awning guy dropped the ball supposedly. Good luck, “Bridge Boutique”!
Haven’t confirmed anything yet, but it’s possible this place became doomed. Awning came off last week, and it seems as if the interior has now been cleared out. They might have done better if they were more downtown near the PATH, etc.
Stopped in here this week to snap a few photos and to see how business is doing.
It’s a rather small shop, but with lots of what they call “before the trend” type clothing. If you want to be a trend-setter before anyone else, this may be the place to shop. Very expensive brands, $250 jeans, $160 shirts, etc. I asked for something in my size, but they indicated they’re kind of stuck with either really big sizes (42) or small sizes (32, 33). Sizes in between are expected to arrive in the near future. Either that, or I need to starve myself for the next few months.
Pieces also has an “Elite Program”, which gives you discounts based on the volume you purchase. For instance, if you spend $1600, you’d get $100 off.
They say they’re doing quite well. I personally don’t spend exorbitant amounts of money on “trendy” type clothing. Seems like nice stuff, but I’m just not that kind of person. Macy*s or the Jersey Gardens outlet mall do fine for me.
Has anyone been there? What are your thoughts?
Seems as if there is more to this boutique than one might have imagined.
“Pieces” is a small chain owned by multi-platinum Hip Hop Producer Needlz.
They have two other locations in Brooklyn and Harlem. You can read more on their website here: http://www.piecesofbklyn.com/v3/

Producer Needlz Opens New Boutique in New Jersey, Working on New Material
Producer Needlz is crafting more than great beats with the launch of his new boutique store Pieces.
The beat maker, who has created music for 50 Cent, Young Buck Game, Talib Kweli, Trina, Ludacris, Fabolous, held a VIP preview opening Friday Sept. 8 for the new boutique, which will be located in Hoboken, New Jersey.
A public grand opening will take place in October. Needlz and his wife Manana Cain aligned with Pieces after the opening of the second boutique in Harlem.
“We teamed up with Pieces because of their reputation for being trendsetters in the fashion industry,” Needlz explained. “We feel that the Pieces brand along with Manana’s background in retail will make for a successful business venture in Hoboken.”
The Hoboken location is the newest Pieces store to open. The clothing boutique, which was founded in Brooklyn, New York, caters to celebrities and selective clothing connoisseurs.
Although he is branching out into other areas, Needlz continues to churn out music, working on tracks for Freeway, Young Buck, Lloyd Banks, Lupe Fiasco, Eamon, Rich Boy, and Shareefa.”
GREAT NEWS! THE UGLY AWNING IS GONE!!
closed for a long time
Will become a store called “Pieces of Hoboken”. They’re currently in the remodeling phase. Not sure what pieces they’ll be selling yet. But “IF Stone” is getting some free marketing for doing their granite or whatever.
I’ll be glad to see that eyesore pink awning gone.
