After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, I was excited to check out this store. I realize any second hand store is going to be very "hit or miss", but I was disappointed with the level of designers in stock and the totally cramped store....More

My wife and I stumbled across the Closet while strolling along Newbury Street on our first visit to Boston. I could not believe the designer shoes and clothing for men. The ladies have a far larger selection. Strangely, I was the one who left with...More

What a horrible experience - as one user mentioned, the staff is so rude it completely sours any good finds this store has to offer. We went on a Sunday and watched in absolute horror as the owner angrily shoved several older ladies out the...More

Fun to look through the clothes; sometimes you can find a real gem. However, beware: the owner is astonishingly rude, as other reviewers note. No eye contact, dismissive, treats you like you're a bother. I'm one of those people who just has trouble spending money...More

Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the
heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and
the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable
skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock
Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit
Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques
– as well as every other kind of store imaginable –
all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice
