Anthropologie Coming to Washington Street in April
The clothing store will fill the old Blockbuster site.
Anthropologie is looking to open its doors in Hoboken in April.
The clothing store is coming to the former Blockbuster site at 412 Washington St., according the broker of the deal, Ron Zimmerman.
Renovations are currently going on at the 7500 square feet space.
The long-term lease was completed in late November, Zimmerman said. "They're investing in Hoboken," he added. The lease is at least 10 years.
Negotiations had been going on for a while.
Blockbuster Video, the previous tenant, closed in March 2011.
Zimmerman called the arrival of the women's clothing store an "incredible boost" to Hoboken.
Zimmerman, who works for RE/MAX Goald Coast realty and has been a realtor for three decades, said that multiple restaurants expressed interest in the space. But, because of the residents upstairs, that wasn't a good fit.
"This is an even better fit than a restaurant," Zimmer said. "We're very pleased to bring this to Hoboken."
