Hoboken Paint & Hardware closes after 23 years (doubled rent!)
Another long-time Hoboken business is now gone. Hoboken Paint & Hardware at 316 Washington Street is officially closed. Gotta love the way “mayor” don Zimmer is going out of her way to keep great businesses in town. As chain store after chain store open, what made Hoboken unique with places like this, close up shop. “Great Downtowns” my ass!
They had everything you could possibly need for the upkeep of your home or apartment. Little nuts & bolts. Light bulbs. Tools, fasteners, hooks, paint, and much more. And they were the ONLY Hoboken hardware store open on Sunday. Now if you need an emergency part or plumbing supply – you’ll have to figure out how to get to Home Depot.
The rent apparently was doubling to around $20,000 per month. But I’m sure if an Apple store opens up there, most of you will be thrilled. Because what more do you need in life? /sarc.
If you happen to be walking by and they’re open – everything inside is 50% off.
Paint & Hardware. Essentially vacant now.
Address: 316 Washington St, Hoboken, NJ 07030
