Greetings from Hoboken empty

As we suspected a few months ago – Greetings from Hoboken (along with The Candle Shop) is no more in the Mile Square.

Greetings from Hoboken the Candle Shop doomed NJ

Does no one like gifts and greeting cards anymore?

Now here’s a question. What “killed” these two businesses in town?

  1. The sky-rocketing rents? Or,
  2. The fact that “physical” things like cards or other trinkets have essentially been replaced with “Five seconds of effort” social media updates “Happy Birthday, Bro!” {click-send} (i.e., people don’t value the importance of a carefully selected gifts or personally-delivered messages?) Or,
  3. Money. “Discretionary” spending like this is one of the first things to go as the economy heads down?

Greetings from Hoboken – 2014 last year?

1/7/2014 Update:

Word on the street is that Gift & Card shop Greetings from Hoboken may not be renewing their lease here on Washington Street and could be gone by this late spring. That would suck, you don’t see too many of these types of stores anymore. And if true, it’d be another piece of Hoboken character down the drain.

Plus, where would you get fun Presidential punching bags like this anymore?

Greetings from Hoboken are they closing in 2014
