Sweet Nicholas – For rent

Sweet Nicholas lasted about five years in Hoboken

About a month ago, another ladies boutique (Sweet Nicholas) quietly closed their doors in Hoboken.

I’m telling you that block on Washington St. between 7th & 8th is cursed – even with celebrity endorsements. I just wonder how new upscale places like Alba Boutique (next door) will fare…

Why do you think these clothing stores are dropping like flies? Less discretionary money for the girls in Hoboken? Bad market research? Terrible location? Social media “likes” not translating into “bucks?”

Sweet Nicholas doomed Hoboken NJ

Sweet Nicholas coming to 718 Washington St.

10/22/2010:

Coming soon to replace the old Halliburton Homes location at 718 Washington Street is a ladies clothing store called Sweet Nicholas (website still under construction.)

Expected to open in November 2010, Sweet Nicholas will be a contemporary women’s clothing boutique that “combines the best shopping trends from both east and west coast” in an “exciting retail environment that offers unique, stylish fashion at affordable prices.”

Accessories, loungewear and activewear will compliment the array of contemporary apparel that will be offered.

Special note to Sweet Nicholas: I’d suggest re-vamping your LOGO. Doesn’t make for a good street-presence. Look what happened to Signature Kitchen because of their wacky logo! Doomed!

Just another case of a business buying in to the Hoboken myth. The rents in Hoboken are simply to high and unsustainable. This isn’t the Village…it’s Hoboken. Hoboken is a poor knockoff of a “village” and way, way overpriced. Sorry, but nothing is going to survive in this town until businesses stop paying the prohibitive rents. As I’ve said in other posts, storefronts need to remain vacant until the Realtors get the message that Hoboken commercial rentals have reached the breaking point.

What’s going on with the lack of men’s clothing shops in Hoboken? It seems like there are dudes everywhere, but the only decent store I’ve found that even carries mens clothing is Paul Michael.

Jos. A Bank? But that’s not a place to shop for casual items so much.

The lack of men’s shops has been on my mind as well today. Was looking for a cool gift for a friend of mine…[quote comment=”199571″]What’s going on with the lack of men’s clothing shops in Hoboken?

Sorry, Russ. Another one bites the dust – Paul Michael is no more.[quote comment=”199571″]What’s going on with the lack of men’s clothing shops in Hoboken? It seems like there are dudes everywhere, but the only decent store I’ve found that even carries mens clothing is Paul Michael.[/quote]

I think the lack of men’s stores just boils down to the fact we don’t shop nearly as much. My girlfriend and I stopped by Sweet Nicholas this week. The store’s decor looks like it belongs in the west village and my girlfriend seemed to like it (she bought something). They have a seating for the guys in tow which i appreciated.[quote comment=”199589″]Sorry, Russ. Another one bites the dust – Paul Michael is no more.
