Uptown Verizon store gone

5/7/2010 Update:

Yep – a cell store failed in Hoboken!

Is it the economy? How could this big-name Verizon Wireless store at 1212 Washington Street fail in Hoboken? Unfathomable!

They vacated the spot on May 1st. Wonder what’s next?

4/14/2010 Update:

What? A cell phone store leaving?

According to this Craigslist ad – the uptown Verizon Wireless store at 1212 Washington Street is for rent.

I guess when they compared the numbers to the downtown Verizon Wireless store – who probably does 100x the business because of Carlo’s Bakery runoff next door – they said “pull the plug!”

1/25/2008 Update:

In case you’re wondering, the new Verizon store opened this week. Joy.

1/3/2008:

Taking the place of the long-defunct and dilapidated Hollywood Deli & Grocery store at 1212 Washington Street, will be a Verizon Wireless store.

Workers on the scene yesterday unpacking “Dead NBA Center” coffin-sized display crates indicated that the store will be open lickety-split. One guy confidently said as soon as January 15th!

I’m sure some uptown residents will be thrilled to have at least one place they can get replacement batteries, new phones or accessories without schlepping downtown.

Wonder if the HATT is needed here, or is this just too simple to muck up? Regardless, first this place shuts down, then Hollywood Video, what’s next? Hollywood Tans and the extinction of “Hollywood” based stores in Hoboken?

Ok, let’s all say in unison: “Oh no, not another cell phone shop, dry cleaner or asian restaurant!” There’s more to come, believe me!

The Verizon store was lame. We need an Apple Store.

The store in Secaucus isn’t terrible either.

Of note, Verizon is offering much better specials online of late. Are they trying to elimiate the sh!t show that some of these stores can become?

[quote comment=”64506″]Why would anyone in their right mind want to go to the Newport Mall. if you have a car, then go to the Verizon store in Edgewater. If you don’t, then you are better off going into the city. Newport in one dangerous mall, too much crime going on in and around there.[/quote]

Last time I went in there I thought I was living in a culturally-updated Hieronymus Bosch painting.

This place is a second site for the one that’s next to LJs. Same owners.

FWIW, I went to the Verizon outlet in Newport, and they wanted to charge me 50 dollars more for a phone than verizon online. That included the rebate. So go figure.
