At the heart of it all
WELCOME TO MAIN STREET!
Peabody Main Streets works to cultivate a great place to live, an enjoyable place to visit and a supportive environment to build a business.
And so far, we have been pretty successful.
Since 2016, Peabody has welcomed many new businesses to Main Street and the transformation and revitalization of Downtown continues to put our community on the map as a top destination on the North Shore of Massachusetts.
WE LOVE LOCAL
We’re a huge supporter of small business! Won’t you join us?
Did you know? 67 cents of every dollar spent at a local shop or service goes right back into the community? It’s always great to shop local and support small businesses!
Main Street is a community of over 100 businesses strong, including the surrounding corridor of Walnut Street, Central/Foster Street and the Washington Street Historical District. A growing list of services including barbershops and salons, dentists, tailors. banks and drug stores complete a one stop shopping experience right on Main Street.
