Bella Ro

Bella Ro no more at 521 Washington in Hoboken

Not sure if it was a new family member on the way or just the decline of the economy – but ladies clothing boutique Bella Ro is No Mo in Ho Bo.

As recently as two days ago they proudly “Tweeted” 20% off all BCBG dresses, and today – they’re empty. I guess when superficial girly fashion blogs glom on you, it’s a sign of certain doom! Watch out business owners!

She did good for a lot longer than most, that’s for sure (almost eight years!)

I just wonder if these female “boutique” owners hope for a bond-trader dude to swoop them off their feet so they can do “other” work than run a retail store (like a baby, which is probably a lot more work than that!)

Bella Ro opens in Hoboken, NJ


New ladies clothing store Bella Ro has taken the place of the previous Platinum Real Estate location. What? A realtor left town? I had to check my watch and my personal GPS unit to make sure it’s 2007, and I’m actually still in Hoboken.

Always like that building. The balconies are cool.

The great Hoboken real estate agent contraction is just beginning. We are over-realtored (if that is a word) and with the prices falling people who jumped into the game for the easy money on the way up may be pushed out on the way down.

Better to have a new clothing shop take the space than another nail salon. Best of luck to Bella Ro.

Prices are falling? Not in the good buildings. Three units in my building sold within 3 weeks of going on the market since November, all of them at higher prices then the same units would have fetched a year ago.

To be more specific, a two bed unit in my building sold for $560 last spring with a realtor. Last week, the EXACT same unit, same floor even, same kitchen appliances, etc….sold for $590 FSBO. There may have been a flight to quality as they say in the real estate market locally, but there are still buildings which are appreciating.

Which building? Or if you don’t feel comfortable disclosing that what area of town?

Might buy late ’08 or in 09 and I’m trying to get a sense of the market.
