Celebrating 100 years in business and counting.
A leader in lifestyle apparel and curated goods.
In 2018, the iconic Leader store building in downtown Cambridge celebrated its 100-year anniversary of continuous operation by the A.W. Johnson family. This business has employed, served and reflected the heart of the Cambridge community which has evolved with each generation.
Opened in 1918 as a classic American department store, the Leader developed the slogan… “If the Leader doesn’t carry it… You don’t need it!”
