Nearly 20 years in Hoboken

“I sadly must report that we are closing our antiques business in Hoboken.

It has been almost 20 years since we opened for business in this town. I wish to thank all our faithful customers for many years of good business. We will sincerely miss the town, but for various reasons, we think it is time to move on. As of this Saturday, March 14th, we will be starting our huge store closing event. Everything in the store will be marked down… there will be some great items at recession busting prices. Please come visit us in the next few weeks before we close the doors.

Again, thanks so much Hoboken for all the good years of business. We will miss you!”

Retro furniture, accessories and other relics from many varying time periods.

Sadly, another shop closing down on Washington. I have noticed quite a few empty storefronts lately. Sorry to see this shop close. I always enjoyed stopping into this shop. I bought things from him through the years.

who cares…junk anyways, the beauty of capitalism-some businesses succeed and some fail. Instead, go to Target and buy new stuff from China looks like antiques.

I hope the new tenant is a nail salon or pizza place. We could never have enough of those!

Ya think these people are pulling a Sleep Cheap & gonna have endless Going Out of Business/Grand Re-Opening sales?

This kind of business does better in places like Manhattan or Chatham, not in an IKEA town. I mean, we have people who live here whose noses fare way better when striking a softer saw dust composed dresser than a hardwood antique.

Good luck to the owner, hope you find a better market elsewhere. The location was good. I’ve been in many times. But I can’t see a business like that thriving at that location with the rents the way they are. A better business model would be something (food, beer, or services) which people purchase weekly.
