Filene’s Basement is one of the places everyone should go to once, just to have the experience. Imagine being thrown into a huge pile of clothing and having to swim your way out, preferably without bumping into other people, while finding something to buy. That’s Filene’s Basement. Be sure to have lots of time and patience on your hands because you really have to look carefully to find clothes worth buying. And be sure to wear your nice underwear since the fitting room is just one giant room, not divided into small changing closets like most clothing stores.
