Grand Convenience: Doomed
Grand Convenience fizzles out uptown
You’d think that in a residential area, a “convenience” store would do OK – selling basic essentials, beverages, newspapers, coffee and snacks. And with their close proximity to Clearview Cinemas, that smarter shoppers would sneak snacks in instead of paying through the nose for over-priced garbage.
Whatever the case – it wasn’t enough for Grand Convenience to stay in business.
Maybe theater attendance is fairly low too?
See what once was – after the jump…
“The secret around the corner”
Since people walk from all directions towards the Clearview Cinemas Movie Theater in Hoboken – some folks are just discovering that Grand Convenience is just steps away! (One customer called it “the secret around the corner.”)
Grand Convenience has been open for a year now, and is one of the small businesses in town we’d like to see survive. So instead of paying “movie theater prices” for a handful of goobers, why not swing by before your next flick? They even have buy two-get one free specials on candy and snacks! A win-win situation: save a few bucks, and help local business at the same time!
Coming later this spring is NJ Lottery Tickets as well.
Good news for NW Hoboken residents. A new convenience store, “Grand Convenience” opened up recently on Grand Street (between 13th and 14th).
It’s a small, unassuming shop with basic necessities you’d find in most convenience stores. The person working there, Felix, seemed quite nice, and said that the owner Alie is going to tailor the store to the customer’s requests – adding or removing products as necessary and changing the hours as needed. They’re adding additional display cases in the future for items like sandwiches and basic vegetables.
It’s a good spot next to the upcoming Clearview Cinemas (for those that want to sneak soda in the theater instead of paying $6.00 for sugar water.)
Description: Convenience store. Coffee, drinks, snacks, cigarettes, packaged food, candy, condiments.
