NYC Pet coming to HOB

“Hoboken Pet” having an “ice cream social” this weekend

According to the signs on the doors of the new Hoboken Pet at 524 Washington St., they’re having a sponsored event this Saturday, July 30th and Sunday, July 31st from 12-4pm, with free pet food samples.

NYC Pet changes name to “Hoboken Pet” in 07030

NYC Pet must have gotten an odd feeling about their name – and has changed the store name for Hoboken to a very creative “Hoboken Pet.”

NYC Pet migrates from Brooklyn, NY to Hoboken, NJ

Heard that the old HSBC Bank branch at 524 Washington St. is becoming another pet store in Hoboken.

NYC Pet – a Brooklyn, NY based pet-store chain with seven locations already (one in Staten Island) – apparently had enough with the rents on the east side of the Hudson – and have grabbed one of the many vacant storefronts on the Avenue.

Stores migrating from NYC to Hoboken seems to be a growing trend (i.e. Ricky’s, Mamoun’s, etc.)

Description: New York based pet store chain
Address: 524 Washington St., Hoboken, NJ 07030

Phone: TBD

I wish any new business well but Cornerstone will always be a favorite. Jeff + staff is super knowledgeable, always willing to special order anything I need, have great stock — its just overall a nice experience. Its probably one of my favorite stores in town. If only every business took some lessons from them…

😕 Not to happy about another pet store. We are fine with what great pet stores we have and they should go back to Brooklyn and stay there. As a long time Hoboken resident I dont like chains.

Ditto on a couple of the Beowoof comments. It’s not the friendliest place, although the beardy guy I’ve run into there is very nice.

Sticking to Cornerstone.

And as much as I’d like to “wish new businesses well”, I can’t. All new businesses lately seem unoriginal. I may as well open a ham-and-cheese-sandwich shop.

Instead of being hopeful, ever thought of asking an existing local business if they can get (or special order) the products you want?[quote comment=”207059″]Hopefully they will carry Blue Buffalo products[/quote]

Neither store was very happy to be asked to special order and wanted several dollars more than what it is available for in NYC. [quote comment=”207061″]Instead of being hopeful, ever thought of asking an existing local business if they can get (or special order) the products you want?[/quote]
