Shop Hoboken - Stay Local


MackeyBlue is swooning about Shop Hoboken: Shop Local, Shop Vintage, Shop Green at MackeyBlue!  Come out and support all your Hoboken retailers this June 11th and 12th!!


Mayor Dawn Zimmer joined local merchants at Anastasia’s Accessories to announce Shop Hoboken — a two day event to encourage residents to support local retailers. Nearly 40 participating retailers throughout Hoboken will offer various specials on Saturday and Sunday, June 11th and 12th.

“Our independent retailers create a unique identity for our city and are an important part of what makes Hoboken so vibrant,” said Mayor Zimmer. “The diverse mix of shops makes us a destination that attracts tourists from throughout the region and drives our local economy. I encourage residents to support our local merchants, especially during these challenging economic times, so we can preserve Hoboken’s distinct character and charm.”

Shopping locally creates more local jobs and promotes environmental sustainability. The City will be providing complimentary shuttle service on both Shop Hoboken days.

“As retailers, ‘Shop Hoboken’ is a way for us to thank residents for their continued support during these difficult times,” said Anastasia Kamper, owner of Anastasia’s Accessories. “Supporting local businesses creates local jobs and keeps dollars in the local economy. Research shows that for every $100 spent locally at independent retailers, $68 stays in the community.”

A list of participating retailers is available on the City website at http://www.hobokennj.org/shophoboken
