ABOUT VOICES FROM THE BASEMENT

Once one of Boston’s most well known shopping destinations, Filene’s Basement is the subject of Voices from the Basement. The Basement was founded in 1909 by Edward and Lincoln Filene, retail pioneers who introduced a radical discount model and forward-thinking philosophy in terms of employee rights. Voiceschronicles the 100-year history of the iconic department store, including the early beginnings, Filene’s trademarks like “Bargain Alley” and the “Running of the Brides,” and the flagship store’s tragic closing in 2007.
