J.McLaughlin is located in the heart of Princeton on Witherspoon Street, next to Agricola Restaurant near Palmer Square and Princeton University. Stroll through the beautiful campus grounds and visit the Collegiate Gothic-State University Chapel, Princeton University Art Museum, or catch a collegiate sporting event at this historic Ivy League destination. Other popular areas to tour include the former home of Albert Einstein, the Morven Museum and Garden, and Princeton Battlefield State Park. The quality and diversity of Princeton’s restaurant scene is constantly on the rise, too. From noodle houses, sandwich shops, and farm-to-table dining, there are endless options for everyone in this cosmopolitan community. Check out Witherspoon Grill, Mediterra, or Teresa’s for a bite, then follow up with dessert at The Bent Spoon, Thomas Sweets, or Halo Pub. You’ll also find a seasonal farmer’s market that operates just steps from our store during the warm-weather months in Hinds Plaza. Downtown Princeton also features a wide variety of retail stores ranging from fashion boutiques and thrift stores to book stores and even a renowned record exchange. J.McLaughlin’s Princeton store is also a proud member of the Princeton Merchants Association. We participate in the annual CommUniversity Arts Festival, the Summer Sidewalk Sale, the Waiter’s race, and more.



We’re taking a walk down Memory Lane aka Witherspoon Street, as we celebrate 30 years in Princeton in 2019. We opened our Princeton store in 1989, after opening our first store outside New York in Westport, Connecticut. We found a charming, Federal-style building on Witherspoon Street near Palmer Square and the rest is history!Learn moreabout our Princeton boutique and it's history.
