Hoboken Anthropologie to open July 26, 2013

A lot of people have been wondering what’s going on with the Hoboken Anthropologie store at 412 Washington. With little action in the past couple weeks, many were curious as to what the deal was.

Well – Anthropologie is officially set to open on Friday, July 26th at 10am.

I wonder how all the little boutiques in town feel about this. Do they have their marketing plans in place? Or will they fall by the wayside? Time will tell!

Hoboken Anthropologie just a few weeks away!

4/2/2013 Update:

In case you were wondering, the Hoboken Anthropologie is moving along nicely at 412 Washington Street. Most of the heavy lifting has been done, and all that’s left is setting up the interior and stocking the big retail chain store.

Hopefully none of the smaller boutiques in town will suffer as a result.

Hoboken Anthropologie set to open in Spring; now hiring

2/28/2013 Update:

We’ve been telling you about Anthropologie coming to Hoboken at 412 Washington Street for a year and a half. Considering we had another “chain store” post yesterday (Baby Gap), figured an update would be in order.

They’re a ways away from opening, and still have the construction Fa├žade in front – but promise to be open this spring.

And for those looking for work – head over to if you’re interested. Anthropologie is currently looking for Store ManagersDepartment Managers and stock room clerks for the Hoboken location.

Who’s excited about this store coming to town?

Anthropologie – 412 Washington Street – Hoboken, NJ

12/10/2012 Update:

It had been nearly a year since the last update about Anthropologie taking the spot of the old Blockbuster at 412 Washington Street. Some eager Hoboken ladies were starting to get worried that plans had fallen through, etc.

It may have taken a long time to get the ball rolling, but fear not! They are still confirmed to move in. Anticipated opening date is early Spring 2013.

Those that have never been – here’s what the Anthropoligie in Edgewater, NJ looks like. 411 note: They have some neat wine glasses and amazing smelling soaps! But the rest is “girlie” stuff.

1/26/2012 Update:

Simple Hoboken business update – we received word (kind of a long time ago), that Anthropologie is indeed confirmed coming to the old Blockbuster location at 412 Washington Street.

And to remind everyone of the big question at large: Will this help small local businesses – or just turn Hoboken into “The Giant Mile Square Strip Mall?”

Anthropologie coming to Hoboken, NJ – bad for local boutiques?

9/2/2011 Update:

Word on the street is that the old Blockbuster location at 412 Washington Street is first becoming the new pop-up store for Spirit Halloween (because Office Depot is taking the Barnes & Noble spot), and then in 2012 – woman’s clothing chain Anthropologie will be making this spot a permanent home.

For one – Anthropologie has many locations in NYC – and another one a few miles up the road in Edgewater, NJ. Do you think it makes sense for them to open one here? Do a lot of Hoboken ladies shop there? And what effect would that have on the many small business boutiques currently lining the Avenue? More empty storefronts?

Who’ll fill the massive spot formerly home to Hoboken Blockbuster?


A lot of people are wondering what can possibly fill the shoes left behind by Blockbuster Video over at 412 Washington Street.

I found out last week – that this spot costs $30,000 per month to rent. Sure, it’s a big space – but what products or services are so in demand that people in and around Hoboken will flock to it and make it profitable?

One idea I came up with – considering all the Falafel places sprouting up – is to combine them all – into one giant “Falafel Mall” (“Falaf-Mall”). Heck, there’s so much room there – you could probably add a few others – and call it the “Mediterranean Food Court” or something along those lines. Might as well. Then different places can take over the falafel infestation.

What would survive here? More food? A giant bar? An unemployment office?
