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 think this is fantastic news, so happy it’s not another real estate office or nail salon!

Or another yogurt/ice cream place, or mobile phone store, or dry cleaner, or convenience store.[quote comment=”207052″]I think this is fantastic news, so happy it’s not another real estate office or nail salon![/quote]

This is the second pet store to open up within close proximity to an existing one in Hoboken. Dumb.[quote comment=”207053″]that’s sooooo close to beowoof – maybe not the best location?[/quote]

There’s really only two petstores in Hoboken. I wish them well. I’m glad they’re coming to town. I hope it works out for them being so close to Beowoof. At the same token with them being a chain store,I’m assuming they’re much bigger. I don’t want to see Beowoof suffer.

I’ve always found the customer service at Beowoof amazing. They don’t just deliver the cat food, they’ll pet kitty and give her a treat too.

Beowoof is just ok. I prefer Cornerstone, by far. Maybe if you only have things delivered you might not realize that if you actually go into Beowoof they are far less interested in the customers (compared to Cornerstone). Oh and also, I was a waiter who always had crayons for kids and a pizza delivery person who would keep a snack handy for dogs. It’s not really that hard to pretend.

I agree. Anyone can bring an extra snack for a dog / cat for a delivery. What really matters is the customer service you get AT a store. When I go to Cornerstone, I leave knowing I made a great purchase (they really know their products). What’s best for my dog is all that matters to the owner and staff at Cornerstone: knowing my needs, they have talked me into a more simple (& less expensive) product than I was originally going to purchase. It’s hard to find honest businesses like that these days!

So, essentially, I’m loyal to Cornerstone…Sorry NYC![quote comment=”207060″]Beowoof is just ok. I prefer Cornerstone, by far.

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]
