• Battaglia’s Home in Hoboken is Closing After 25 Years

    Written by:

    Another day, another sad store closing in Hoboken. We are very sad to report that a true Mile Square staple, Battaglia’s Home, will be closing its doors. The popular home goods store, located at 1414 Willow Avenue, has called Hoboken its home for 25 years, starting at a small storefront on 10th and Bloomfield in 1993. Battaglia’s Home moved to Willow Avenue since 2008 and have been there ever since — most known for their huge, two-floor space and parking in the back {a rare gem in town}. Read on for more details on the closing, and why we will miss them:

    Why We Loved It

    Whether you needed a new couch, a new mirror, or a simple, quick kitchen gadget, Battaglia’s Home always came through. A variety of home furnishings took up the entire first level and on the second level was every kitchen tool you could ever imagine {plus a bunch you never knew you needed, but will convince yourself you do}. 

    Here are a few older pics we have from inside the store:

    The Closing

    hMAG broke the news of Battaglia’s Home closing this morning, and spoke with the owner, Brian Battaglia who shared the following with them:

    After 25 years of serving the Hoboken community, Battaglia’s Home will be closing its doors and running a Going out of Business Sale over the coming weeks.

    We grew the business from a very small kitchen store on 10th and Bloomfield that we opened in 1993, to two stores on Washington Street, to the current store, which we opened in 2008. We are forever thankful for all of our customers who have treated us not only as a business but also as a part of the Hoboken community. Our business and our family grew up in Hoboken, and we feel fortunate to have been here to witness Hoboken develop into the town it is today.

    We have loved watching your families grow and having children we met as babies come and work in the store as young adults. You let us into your lives in small ways when you needed wine glasses for a party or a candle for a teacher gift and bigger ways when we helped you layout and furnish your first apartment, or get a sleeper sofa for when your parents visited.

    Never have we felt the love of our neighbors more than after Sandy destroyed our store and so many people came out to help us clean up and to purchase products they probably didn’t need to help us get back on our feet.

    It has been a long and incredibly fulfilling journey but it is now time for us to move to another stage in our lives and our next challenge. Thank you to all of our customers, friends, and neighbors for your support and business through the years.

    As for the sale — it is happening this Friday, August 3rd, through Monday, August 6th. We definitely suggest hitting up the sale to score some amazing deals and of course, to show Battaglia’s Home some love as they close shop. More details on the sale below:

    All in all, Hoboken residents have been spoiled with Battaglia’s Home for the last 25 years. It was the perfect local spot if you had a kitchen-emergency and needed something in a hurry, or if you wanted to redecorate your home in entirety. They also never failed in the gift department, as they had a variety of funny and unique gifts. We are so, so sad to see it go, but wish the owners all the best in their new endeavors.

    • This is really sad news. An iconic store in Hoboken, used to love Battaglia ‘s & frequented it when they were on Washington Street.
      I am guilty of not visiting often enough when they moved uptown 🙁
      Wishing Brian & Bruce the very Best in future.
      I am sure Hoboken will miss you guys as much as they will miss the store.

    • It’s sad to see them go. I feared they may go out of business when West Elm moved in right next to them. I’ve purchased furniture, kitchen tools, Christmas decorations and so many other little things over the past few years. When I moved here from Manhattan a few years ago I tried my best to seek out family owned and local businesses to support.

      I was so very happy to find them. The minute I walked through the door; everyone was helpful, friendly and didn’t oversell anything, nor rush through check out.
      If more people focused on seeking out local family owned businesses we may not have to say farewell to such important members of the community.

    • This is truly a loss to the community. Have gotten so much from there, but especially loved the unique Christmas decor. Thank you, Battaglias, you will be missed.

    • I don’t recognize my town more and more, some of the changes in the last 25 years are good (we haven’t had a mayor convicted of anything ina. while), some are bad. I am constantly amazed how Queens and Brooklyn and Jersey City can support artisanal sock boutiques, but Hoboken cannot anything but a bar with giant TV’s open.
