Ciao Belly: Doomed
Ciao Belly quits in baby-filled Hoboken, NJ after just 4 years
The kids clothing store Ciao Belly at 730 Washington St. is closing up shop.
The owner cites her recent baby a year and a half ago, which was making it difficult for her to run the business. Several Hoboken411 readers sent in emails wondering why, since Hoboken is chock full of strollers and kids, that the owner wouldn’t just hire a manager to take the burden off. Shouldn’t they have been raking it in? Or was the selection a problem? Price? Location? Competition from the Serenity Boutique?
Whatever the case was – they’ll be enjoying life in the suburbs once they close the doors for good. Head over there soon to get 25% to 75% off everything in the store.
Ciao Belly opens up in Hoboken
Ciao Belly opened up this week!
Owner Laura is still putting some final touches inside, but it had a warm and welcoming layout and even has a mini play area for the kids, which includes a chalk board door they can scribble on. She said that’s already a popular spot in the store for the toddlers.

As a substitute for this not-so-snowy Monday morning, here’s some Hoboken411 fluffy fill I’ve been sitting on for over a month.. ugh.
Replacing the doomed Clipp One “hair management clinic” will be Ciao Belly. A mashup-type baby, mommy, kiddie store that sells maternity, baby and toddler clothing and other items, supplies and gifts related to embryonic creations. Owner Laura Woodland, who has upgraded from running the business from her apartment on Madison St., is aiming to open within about a month.
