United Decorating to close in Hoboken

Welp, another one bites the dust in Hoboken – As United Decorating over at 5th & Washington is closing.

The sign is a bit funny, though: “Owner Retiring after 116 years of service to Hoboken.” That would also make them a world record holder for age too?

Anyway – the super pathetic thing is that they cite the main reason for the closing is that the city of Hoboken used to use them as a supplier for many things, including all the American Flags used on public property throughout the mile square. “mayor” don Zimmer decided NOT to “shop local” and purchased fake “made in China” flags from an outside vendor instead to save a few shekels for her cronies. What a bitch (that is).

Another sad day for Hoboken as character is wiped from the city to pave the way for more chain stores. Joy to the world.
