    Meet the Owners

    Maison 24 opened in 2008, just before the economic crash that occurred the following fall. Allison and Louis were prepared for the worst but successfully made it through. The two are now celebrating their 11th year in business.

    Allison and Louis are brother and sister and shared with Hoboken Girl that they have always been extremely close and never thought twice about becoming business partners. They are both like-minded and gravitate towards the same aesthetic, which makes decision-making for the store a breeze. Allison and Louis explained that customers are often shocked to hear they are brother and sister and joke that they could never imagine working so closely with a sibling. Luckily for this duo, owning a business together comes easy.

    As for being a Hoboken-based shop, it’s the friendly and warm community that makes running + owning a business in Mile Square so special.

    “In the short time we’ve been open we have received so many well wishes, helpful tips, friendly service at restaurants and other retailers,” they said. “It’s just a pleasure doing business where the majority of the stores are still independents and neighbors look out for one another. There is a strong sense of community in Hoboken and we’re happy to be part of it.”
