DRUMROLL, PLEASE! WE PROUDLY PRESENT OUR GUIDE
TO THE BEST INDEPENDENT STORES IN MIDDLESEX COUNTY
BY MARY ANN BOURBEAU
WHY HEAD TO THE MALL WHEN YOU CAN
FIND
everything you need nearby in local stores? We’ve scoured the
area to bring you 142 of the best independent shopping destina-
tions in Middlesex County. Competition was fierce and we
couldn’t include everyone, but we strove to select stores that
feature great products, unique items that are hard to find else-
where and stellar customer service. No matter what you’re
searching for, chances are one of these top shops can help—and
you’ll enjoy a one-of-a-kind shopping experience that only the
diversity of a local store can bring you. Did you know that shop-
ping at a locally owned business instead of at a national chain
store causes three times more money to be circulated back into
the local community? That should make you feel great about
spending on Main Street. Happy shopping!
