Joon Lee Gifts & Jewelry

Dumpy store Doomed?

I recall some businesses as I was growing up that had perpetual “Going out of Business” sales, which were in fact bogus to get customers inside hoping to score good deals. Not too much of that happening these days, because the going out of business sales have actually been real!

Not sure what the deal is here with this place. Is this on your Holiday Shopping list?

Parlez vous “tax write-off”?

You’re right , I wish the guy well, and this thread is his eulogy, but I always sort of thought that if I didn’t ask how much a new watch battery was before it was installed it might cost more after the fact. Oh well, sometime around 1980 this became one of those stores that time forgot, and I wonder what kind of BS a person has to deal with trying to sell watch batteries for $5 a pop installed. I don’t suspect anyone else is going to step up to the plate after this place closes.

Guy just needs to be more enterprising. How about Joon Lee Nails + Gifts + Happy Ending Massage shop?

The commercials landlords should be grateful to have paying businesses. Don’t they look around and see all the empty store fronts. It’s all greed. Remember Ted&Joe’s, that landlord tried the same thing, so now it’s empty and he gets no rent..

Anyway, does anyone know when the last day is?

How dare anyone make any money in Hoboken without immediately remitting it to the Nobel Born and Raised Landowning Class. They were here in the 1970s, punk! Where were you?

Maybe the landlord was here in the 70’s too. He didnt make crap back then when the town was crap.

A landlord is a business owner, his goal is to make as much as possible. No different than the owner of the store. So if he can get more in rent why shouldnt he?

I like mom and pop shops but they need to keep there product up to date to make the money the new rents require. It is business.

Should Joon Lee sell his product for less money because not everyone van afford a fancy new watch so why should the landlord?

“when” the town was crap? New tenants with champagne taste and beer pockets haven’t made any change—open your eyes stupid!

yes the town was crap and thats why there was a wave of fires during that time. To get rid of the crappy element that lived here and bring in a lot of artist and musicians.

So you may not like the people that live here now and thats fine but trying to justify that Hoboken was a great place in the 70’s is stupid. It was dangerous and filled with poor tenaments.

“Bring in artists and musicians”??? Yeah because they’re usually flush with cash.

It was about bringing in the finance workers. The some people who are now hurting, because, contrary to recent sentiment, a storefront on Washington really isn’t worth 14k a month any more than a 1000 sf tin and sheetrock condo is worth 600k plus 10k in taxes.

Ah whatever. Right now it’s just the little guy getting squeezed. When the nationals tire of losing money and start shutting down or scaling back (American Apparel, JoS Abank, DD etc…) then maybe you’ll get it.

Your sarcasm meter is in need of calibration.
