MAYOR ZIMMER AND LOCAL RETAILERS URGE RESIDENTS TO "SHOP HOBOKEN"
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.

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.”
