Hoboken Coffee Wars
Bait and Switch!
Hoboken411 reader “Coffee Addict” sent in an email yesterday, about their observations regarding the corner of 5th and Washington: “Coffee wars once again. 7-11 is now in lead with any size 69 cents beating Hoboken Daily News at 79 cents. Will HDN go less?”
What the coffee addict didn’t realize is – that the newly opened 7 Eleven isn’t engaged in a price war with the long-time king of the corner – it’s the typical “bait and switch” to get you into the store. In order to get that 69 cent price, you need to purchase a sandwich from 7-Eleven as well! Otherwise, the cost for the coffee is $1.49! Don’t be fooled by misleading advertising!

How do you feel about the 7-Eleven opening up directly across the street from Hoboken Daily News? Perhaps you should stop by and make a purchase every now and then – and say hello to the owners who’ve stayed in Hoboken through thick and thin. The last thing we need is yet another empty storefront on Washington!
