Our Story

In September of 2006, Philip opened On Centre in the heart of Jamaica Plain, one of Boston’s most eclectic neighborhoods. He envisioned a store that reflected and contributed to the quirky vibe of the area. 

On Centre has grown into a mini-department store with a little bit of everything for everyone; with micro-departments that are ever-rotating. When you visit, you’ll find whimsical clothing, funky jewelry, funny gifts, and beautiful stationery. New inventory arrives every day, which means you never see the same store twice!

This website is a new extension of our brick-and-mortar store, and we hope it allows the spirit and creativity of the store to shine through your computer screen.

Welcome to On Centre and thank you for visiting us!
