Is anything moving into Maplewood Stationers?

jamie
I thought I heard a tenant was found - but didn't hear what is was.


joan_crystal

Glad to learn someone is moving into that space.  It has been vacant far too long.


yahooyahoo

Is there any construction inside?


jamie

Looks like it's cleared out - nothing being constructed as of yet.  I did get confirmation that a tenant was found, but they're not ready to publicly announce who it is yet.


tomcat

Let me guess:   A nail salon???


mrincredible

Sanders NJ campaign HQ?


ml1

if they aren't ready to announce, I won't give away what I heard

but I think it's ok to tell that it doesn't duplicate any type of business currently in the village to my knowledge

 Just that "Village" section or the entire township?

So it's not:

  1. A bookstore
  2. A nail salon
  3. an optometrist
  4. A bakery
  5. A gift/knick knack shop
  6. A self-serve frozen yogurt
  7. A realtor
  8. An ice cream parlor
  9. An overpriced Italian restaurant 
  10. A moderately-prices Italian restaurant
  11. A Thai place
  12. A pub
  13. A Coda
  14. A hair salon
  15. A train station
  16. A community theater
  17. A Methodist church
  18. An architect
  19. A movie theater
  20. A pizza joint
  21. An indoor golf range
  22. A florist
  23. A paper goods/stationery store
  24. A fish market
  25. A grocery store
  26. A bank
  27. A Starbucks 
  28. A coffee shop
  29. A diner
  30. A barber shop

Did I miss anything? That was from memory.

Your memory of the south side of Baker Street is a bit behind the times. Sadly, no more No. 23. Happily, you can add an art supplies store, a gourmet food shop and a men’s clothing boutique to your list.

There is also a shop that sells feel better products that may include hemp on Maplewood Ave and Inwood.

 What was No. 23?

I should have said art supply store instead of paper and stationery store.

I thought your No. 23 meant Truly Yours, whose space is now the gourmet food store.

 Where is there a paper goods/stationary store in the Village?  Maplewood Stationers and Truly Yours are both gone.

A clothing store, an art supply store, a gym, an event space, and several stores selling toys can be added to the above list of current businesses in the Village.

I was thinking of the art supply store. They also have some stationery-type stuff.

Where's the gym?  cool cheese

 Where the toy shop used to be.

So, so far, Nobody has said it is not Bernie Sanders, New Jersey campaign office going in there.

 it's an apiary/art gallery/public living room/law office


dave

A WeWork space


joan_crystal

Art gallery/art class space and law office are already in the Village.  The 10 birds that have resided in an apartment in the Village for many years (apiary???) are presently looking for new homes.  Would the Woodland qualify as a public living room? 

What we no longer have in the Village, besides the Stationary Store which previously occupied the space in question, is a pharmacy.  The presently vacant space would be a good location for one.


yahooyahoo

There's an M.D. on Maplewood Ave in town that consults with patients about medical marijuana (among other services).


mrincredible

An apiary is a domesticated bee hive. Go figure.

Joan I agree with you about the pharmacy but I don't think the market favors stand-alone pharmacies any more. They can't compete with something like CVS or Walgreen's, which operate more like a small department store. They also have much more convenient hours, whereas a small pharmacist-owned business won't be open from 8 am to 8 pm.

A Democratic candidate spending money on a primary headquarters in Maplewood would be a very inefficient use of money.

 Maybe just a locked bin with a deposit slot for cash then. They could put it where the drive through mailbox used to be.


ridski

It's okay, ml1, I see what you did there.


jfinnegan

Hardware store? Shoe store? German beer store with large pretzels?

Hi, Joan. As ridski notes above, ml1 was making sport of the kinds of ideas that were floated for the old post office building by supporters of keeping and rehabilitating it.
