What? A cell phone store leaving?
According to this Craigslist ad – the uptown Verizon Wireless store at 1212 Washington Street is for rent.
In case you’re wondering, the new Verizon store opened this week. Joy.
Workers on the scene yesterday unpacking “Dead NBA Center” coffin-sized display crates indicated that the store will be open lickety-split. One guy confidently said as soon as January 15th!
I’m sure some uptown residents will be thrilled to have at least one place they can get replacement batteries, new phones or accessories without schlepping downtown.
Wonder if the HATT is needed here, or is this just too simple to muck up? Regardless, first this place shuts down, then Hollywood Video, what’s next? Hollywood Tans and the extinction of “Hollywood” based stores in Hoboken?
Ok, let’s all say in unison: “Oh no, not another cell phone shop, dry cleaner or asian restaurant!” There’s more to come, believe me!
