Great Reasons to Visit Cushing Square

Posted on

For many in Belmont, Cushing Square used to be a place one would drive by en route from Point A to Point B – say, from town center to Watertown. Now, it’s a place where one stops, shops, meets up with friends, and considers a “destination.” We couldn’t be happier to be part of this neighborhood!

Common Street is a great place for bargain hunters. Of course, we’d be remiss in not tooting our own horn – we offer sweet prices on gently used children’s clothing and gear, as well as maternity clothing. Women who seek clothes beyond nursing tops and stretch-panel jeans go across the street to Revolve. Revolve, another mom-owned business, sells consigned better-brand clothing and accessories (think Diesel jeans and Louis Vuitton bags) at reasonable prices.

For those who need fuel before a shopping jaunt or a refuel after a big splurge, we have a gorgeous Starbucks with a Clover brewing system. Kitchen on Common is a great place to eat – the food there is not only delicious, but most often also locally-sourced and organic.

No trip to Cushing Square is complete without a trip to Ben Franklin, a place full of crafts, toys, housewares – all with an old-fashioned five-and-dime feel.

These are just a few suggestions on what to do in our neighborhood. If you’re a regular to this area, please post your tip for shopping in the Square.

  2. Cushing Square has come a long way since I moved to Belmont 6 years ago. It really is a great place to walk through, eat & of course shop. It wouldn’t be what it is today if it wasn’t for your great shop Abby! One of my favorite discount stores ever!

  3. Thanks, Annette and Mary!
