Home Depot Jersey City

2/18/2010 Update:

Are you happy Home Depot is in Jersey City?

Most residents I’ve spoken with have a very nonchalant attitude about the Home Depot that opened up over two years ago in neighboring Jersey City.

Usual sentiments were “Other Home Depots were bigger,” “Staff is rude and slow,” and “only in a bind.” And most of the time, the Home Depot in also nearby Secaucus was preferred over Jersey City.

What is your opinion?

I’ve heard mixed reviews about the new Home Depot that opened up in neighboring Jersey City a few weeks ago.

A Hoboken411 reader stopped by there in search of some items, and whipped together a quick recap of her observations. The Cliff-Notes version is: Glad we have the Secaucus Home Depot as well as Lowes Hardware stores to choose from.

“The new Home Depot on 12th street between Marin Blvd and Grove St in Jersey City is sizable, but not as large at the Secaucus store. However, unlike the Secaucus store, it is sparkling and everything is in its place. It has a large design center that features everything from flooring to molding to cabinetry and appliances.

Last Saturday morning at 11am, there were less than 20 cars in the parking lot; the store was indeed devoid of customers. Normally an empty Home Depot is great because you can get lots of help from the staff. In this case, the staff are all in training–no one knows anything. It took 30 minutes to find someone who ultimately told me they don’t carry the shelves I saw on HomeDepot.com.

If you’re a Home Depot merchandising plannogram expert, by all means head over to the 12th street store while it still has its “new store smell.”

By the way, I did not buy from Home Depot. I went up to Lowes in Rutherford (Rt. 17), which by the way, is a pretty nice store. I don’t recall ever being in a Lowes before and I was impressed. All the same lumber and hardware as Home Depot, but also has soft goods like folding chairs, holiday decorations, and … the shelves I was looking for.”

we love this home depot, it’s convenient, and the employees there are always helpful to us…..

but I was on the roof parking level this weekend, shopping the great selection of flowers with my wife, and was a bit horrified to see the pavement up there is all buckling! (i don’t know if that’s spelling correctly) but obviously, parts of the structure are not level, and the pavement is cracking and sagging all over the place… scary!


@ EasyE said: “Just walked past the one further north on Washington street, near Blockbuster and it was open today. That’s new.”



This was a smart location considering the development going on in downtown Jersey City and Bayonne, and if this administration ever allows anything besides a park to ever be built again in Hoboken. If Home Depot has bike racks, it can make some money off of Hoboken. But we are ready to spend another 16million to repair walkways that we should be suing to get fixed. As Nino Giacchi points out, appeal the 4.5 million for the retirement fine and bring a suit against the contractors who did such a great job on that walkway that crumbled in 3 locations within 4 years of being built.

Up until now, I never did anything on a Sunday because there’s ALWAYS some little damned thing I need and I don’t always want to drive and then find parking when I come back.


There is a ace hardware store not very far from my house, they might not have millions of things that the big box stores have but I usually can make do with what they have. Thelast time I went to get something I noticed that they had only 2 or 3 items of each on the shelves Idon’t think that’s a good sign. Also the prices are a little higher.
