Augie’s new spot: 419 Adams Street
Augie’s has a new home!
Yes it’s been true for quite a while – but this spot at 419 Adams Street was indeed taken over by Augie’s (previously at 461 5th Street). This re-located and updated liquor and convenience store has a much expanded cooler section – and an improved, cleaner look! Welcome Augie’s to their new spot, and support local Hoboken businesses!

Another Hoboken liquor store?
This location at 419 Adams St. (across the street from the Russo Civic Center and Fiore’s Deli) has been vacant for quite awhile. At one point during the long-gone real estate boom, it was some kind of mortgage broker…
I poked my head in last week to see what was happening, and tried to chat with one worker (who spoke practically zero English). After multiple successful attempts, I finally used hand gestures and sign language and he uttered “Lee-Kor Store!”
Not sure if it’ll be a full-fledged place for booze, or just a bodega that can sell it as part of their offerings. Kind of odd, since Augie’s is right around the corner on 5th Street. Who’d approve that?
