The Best Spots in Hoboken to Post Event Flyers

Written by:

Our Thursday list of event happenings in Hudson County is a great place to get the word out online about an upcoming charity or business event. But in Hoboken, printed flyers — as old-school as they may seem — are still an effective way to promote and sell tickets around town for various events. There are many neighborhood community boards at local shops to post information about an upcoming event or drop off business cards, coupons or brochures. So we’ve created a list of them. Keep reading for our list of coffee shops, supermarkets, and stores in Hoboken to post event flyers:

Tips to Keep in Mind Before You Post

Before posting a flyer for an event, keep these  tips in mind to help make it as seamless as possible:

  • Many of these boards have their own pins, thumbtacks or magnets, but we recommend bringing some tape or thumbtacks just in case they are all taken.
  • Be respectful to community friends and don’t cover up someone else’s event flyer.
  • Don’t put the flyer up too early before the event as many of these businesses clean their boards weekly.
  • We recommend walking around town to post earlier in the day, as some locations close before 7:00PM {Turning Point for example closes at 3:00PM}.
  • Be appreciative of the businesses. Say thank you and come back after the event is over to take down the flyer. If posting at a location on a regular basis, buy a cup of coffee or croissant.
  • Post flyers in places that attract a similar audience. {For example, baby stores for mommy-and-me classes like Wee Babe or JoJo Maman Bebe are great options}.

The Locations

Now to the important part — where to post in Hoboken. The key is to think outside the box. We’ve rounded up a ton of spots that allow for flyer posting, so keep this handy!

Coffee Shops + Restaurants

A magnetic black wall opposite the front door of the coffee shop is where a flyer can be posted.

A board is located on the right-hand side of the cafe when customers first walk in, by the milk counter.

Choc O Pain French Bakery {1500 Hudson Street}

The uptown location allows flyers and cards on a counter in the far left corner of the bakery. {The downtown location seems to have taken their area away for posting, but definitely still call to check}.

The coffee hotspot has a wall in the back left corner, outside the restrooms, where the community can post flyers.

Hidden Grounds Coffee {700 Garden Street}

The cafe on the corner of 7th and Garden has a spot on the side of the refrigerator by the milk and sugar counter

Starbucks {51 Newark Street + 1205 Hudson Street}

Both uptown and downtown locations have boards to post {note: the midtown location recently repainted and took down their board —  call to confirm if the board is back up}. Uptown, the board can be found across from the pick-up counter. Downtown, find the board inside the front door on the left side near the pickup area.

Turning Point {1420 Sinatra Drive}

The board is located outside the men’s and women’s restrooms at this breakfast and lunch spot on the waterfront.
