Filene’s Basement

Founded in Boston a century ago, this off-price spin-off of the original department store carries designer clothing and accessories for men, women, and children as well as a small selection of gifts and housewares. Find looks by Theory, 7 For All Mankind, Marc Jacobs, and French Connection for a fraction of the original price and, once a year, designer wedding gowns for the famed Running of the Brides event. Insiders tip: Inventory arrives every Monday and Thursday.
