Urban Outfitters Coming To Montclair

We hate to say we told ya so...but we told ya so...Proving yet again that Baristanet intelligence is somewhat completely reliable, today's Montclair Times announced that "after months of rumors" national overpriced jeans apparel and whatever chain, Urban Outfitters, will be opening their first New Jersey store, ever, in Montclair. (Gee, thanks.)  The lease is signed on the space at 16 South Park Street, previously used by furniture store, D. Marie's, according to Neal Richards, VP of Vanguard Realty. Richards also said

" ..the store will be laid out over two stories, and 12,500 square feet and that it is projected to be open this summer."

Could be a blessing or a curse.

A perfect complement to the town. It will be a draw for area pre-teens & college kids seeking a funky, mass-produced mix of erzatz hipness with a sliding scale of cost.

But do they have colanders? And WTF is "erzatz hipness." Is that like what Jack Nicklaus had implanted?

Confused in Nutley

Jeepers, all that dough and all you get is ersatz. I want my money bax.

Sounds like montclair's hipsters will be making the scene at the intersections of church and south park streets.

"Bring back the Wedgewood Cafeteria!"

Sadly the days of class and stold fashion style are behind us.

Loved the Wedgewood !!!That brougjt back some great memories

Could be worse, Walleroo. You could get bupkis.

Oh get off all that "there goes the neighborhood" business. Every few months posters on this site go on and on about SOMETHING that will ruin Montclair. It's tiresome.

I think Urban Outfitters is a great store and suits the style of many Montclair residents well.

Is it bupkis or bubkis? I prefer bupkis. The other one sounds short for Bubba's kiss, and I'm not kissing anybody named Bubba.

Posted by: walleroo | Feb 16, 2006 7:07:57 PM

come over here, walleroo.

Posted by: Bubba | Feb 16, 2006 9:17:58 PM

Stay away from me, you prevert.

Posted by: walleroo | Feb 16, 2006 9:22:51 PM

it's bupkis or bupkes or bupkus. take your pick.

Posted by: tilly | Feb 16, 2006 9:23:08 PM

It's really "bubkes", bubeleh, but that's all right. I'll sit here in the dark with the burned toast...

Posted by: Conan the Grammarian | Feb 16, 2006 9:23:34 PM

I can't abide bupkus. Sounds like somebody burping and cussing at the same time.

While we're at it, isn't it boobala?

I'm so confused. I failed Yiddish in h.s.

Posted by: walleroo | Feb 16, 2006 9:25:15 PM

Pre-vert? "You'll have to answer to the Coca Cola company for that..."

Ah, Kubrick, you were a master.

Posted by: Conan the Grammarian | Feb 16, 2006 9:25:22 PM

hear that? somewhere a hair just split.

Sure, Conan, if my grandma is spelling it. Otherwise the others are perfectly acceptable, according to Webster.

kiss my tuchis, bubeleh

Posted by: tilly | Feb 16, 2006 9:35:01 PM

I love that store. If only Anthropologie would open in Montclair too....

Posted by: Jessica | Feb 16, 2006 9:47:14 PM

Jessica, are you 13 years old by any chance?

Posted by: walleroo | Feb 16, 2006 10:05:09 PM

"Mein Fuhrer! I can valk!"

Posted by: walleroo | Feb 16, 2006 10:05:57 PM

Stop it! You can't fight in the War Room!

Posted by: Greg Spinelli | Feb 16, 2006 10:25:09 PM

"kiss my tuchis, bubeleh"

tilly, this escaped me at first because I think you addressed it to Conan when in fact it was I who split the offending hair. I'll have you know that empires have fallen on more subtle differences. Anyway, I choose to put aside our spelling disagreement and take your objection to Conan as a flirtation addressed to me. Though I would prefer to kiss your took-ass, boobala, if you don't mind. Your place or mine?
