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 Façade in front – but promise to be open this spring.

And for those looking for work – head over to www.anthropologie.com/careers 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.

Anthropologie Coming to Hoboken, NJ

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?

3/28/2011:

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?

    As long as the PARKING sucks in Hoboken, ALL of the businesses are doomed. Anthropologie isn’t going to shut down the other stores in Hoboken, the parking authority and the mayor are going to.

      Good lord! Will people stop complaining about parking! Just don’t be so freaking cheap! Put your darn quarters in the meter instead of parking off Washington St illegally on the corner, or in the resident only side, etc. And if there is no meter parking pay the $7 for a garage. It’s cheaper than the $50 parking ticket. Just like the owner of Maxwells complaining about parking as he closed- despite the fact that multiple new parking garages have opened within a couple blocks of the bar. As someone who pushes a stroller, walks a dog, and runs about 30 miles per week, I have zero sympathy for inconsiderate a$$holes who park illegally and make every intersection dangerous.

      Nobody shops in Manhattan because it’s difficult to park. [quote comment=”213626″]As long as the PARKING sucks in Hoboken, ALL of the businesses are doomed. Anthropologie isn’t going to shut down the other stores in Hoboken, the parking authority and the mayor are going to.[/quote]

    I love the clothes Anthropologie sells, and feel the price is worth it. A very creatively laid out store, too. Looking forward to it. Hopefully they will at least employ locals.

    Besides the high rents, these business ownes have to put up with the city hall bullshit. Early one morning while going for a coffee, I seen a city worker taking photos on 3rd and Washington of trash on a sidewalk to justify a summons an owner would receive. This guy was taking photos hours before the store opened for business. The trash consisted of tossed paper pizza plates, newspapers, and cups that most likely have blown on the owners property since it wasn’t an eatery. Are these workers really that stupid? Asswipes? Or just plain assholes.

    • joey maxim says:

      that’s a puzzle…I believe the inspectors surfice prior to 9pm ..unless the rules changed.
      consider the revelers that toss pizza paper plates and such after the bars close..btn a rock and a hard place…shop owners .only option is to file a greevence in court..?? who knows?

    Shaking my head in amazement how anyone could get excited for another place to depart with your money. I overheard some girls shrieking about it yesterday.
