The Harvard Square Business Association has joined the national trend that now commemorates the day after Thanksgiving as Plaid Friday. Nationally, Plaid Friday celebrates independently owned and operated businesses. We are proud that 80% of businesses in Harvard Square fall into that category. In addition, several larger retailers add to the dynamic shopping experience found here in Cambridge. Whether Plaid or Black, we encourage you discover the myriad of shopping options available in Harvard Square!
Harvard Square has been a shopping destination since 1630! The merchandise in our eclectic stores run the gamut from upscale clothing to vintage finery, cigars to gourmet food, books galore, jewelry and just about everything else in between! And if you need a respite from a busy day exploring our stores, Harvard Square is also the home to over 100 restaurants and eateries.

Cambridge Local First
Think Local Thank Local:
Cambridge Local First is launching its fifth annual “Think Local Thank Local” campaign for charity. This year, over 41 locally owned and independent Cambridge businesses will donate a portion of their proceeds to the Cambridge Housing Assistance Fund
Participating businesses in the “Think Local Thank Local” campaign pledge a percentage of their revenues during the first week of peak holiday shopping after Thanksgiving. They promote “Think Local Thank Local” in their stores, on storefront signs, and in other media. The campaign aims to mutually energize both the local charity and the affiliated local businesses. Past campaigns have benefited local charities On the Rise and Food For Free.
To support CHAF, please shop where you see a “Think Local Thank Local” sign. The campaign will begin the day after Thanksgiving and runs until Friday, December 2 this year.
