J.McLaughlin expands in Wayland Square


Savvy shoppers know that Wayland Square is where it’s at. Find a mix of local institutions that have been there upwards of a decade, plus newcomers and national brands. J.McLaughlin, a classic fashion chain with New England roots, has been one of these fixtures for the last seven years, and is planting itself firmly in the heart of the East Side with its new 1,000-square-foot, corner lot location on Angel Avenue. Bigger space means bigger inventory – a full assortment of men’s, women’s, children’s, and their recently launched shoe collection from last year.

The new store takes cues from the Colonial-era homes sprinkled throughout the East Side. There’s blue gingham carpeting, faux painted moldings, and rattan-lined cabinets. The exterior brick is now painted navy, with blue awnings and silver logo.

“We are excited to be a major part of the burgeoning Wayland Square shopping destination experience,” says Store Manager Noelle Claveloux. 497 Angel Avenue
