A few of the shops in New Jersey’s boutique retail landscape have seen their business suffer.
And they’re not alone.
There’s been a steady decline in the number of shops in the state’s boutique business, which includes both traditional stores and smaller shops, as well as online retailers such as Target and Amazon.
The number of traditional retailers has dropped by about a third since the end of the recession.
The decline in traditional retail is the main reason why New Jersey has one of the lowest sales of new home construction, according to the National Association of Realtors.
The NAR’s annual Home Builders report found that a third of the state experienced a decrease in new home building in 2018.
The most recent data, from the Census Bureau, found that the number increased by 2.7% in New York, 5.7%, in California and 7.3% in Texas.
The state has seen a steady decrease in the percentage of its population living in apartments, with the percentage down to 9.7%.
The median price for a home in New Zealand was $1.24 million in 2017.
The average price in New England was $638,000, according the report.
