And now, replacing that old dusty-shelved place, we have in it’s place something which is so much more needed in the neighborhood. I’ll give you a hint – there isn’t another one of these for at least a block. Take a walk by and see for yourself.

[quote comment=”56133″]Now I’m not an old-school B&R (I’ve lived here barely half my life) but I will say this- personally I feel that small mom & pop stores like this, rustic though they may be, give (gave) Hoboken much more of a community feel than the revolving door of presumptuous corporate boutiques which has now become the norm in town. It’s always nice to be able to go into a place and see a familiar face working behind the counter day in & day out. Sadly, that’s becoming the exception rather than the norm nowadays. I’m sure many here will disagree with me – after all, this place had dirty shelves – but I guess I care less than many others about the superficial attributes of local businesses and more about the people behind them.[/quote]

I used to live across the street from this business. yes – they closed too early and yes their shelves may not have been too clean but the owner and his family were and are very nice. He lost his wife this past year and kept on. he is generous and so is his son. I wish he could have made it on cigs and lottery tickets. Nice people and ashame that this is now doomed.
