#ShopTheBlock: Pearl-to-Temple Streets

With so many great locally owned shops to explore in Downtown Nashua, you might wonder how you’ll be able to visit them all. Why not #ShopTheBlock with us? 

#ShopTheBlock is our way to help you arrange your shopping trip into bite-size pieces of our Main Street neighborhood businesses. Each week, we’ll showcase two of our “blocks” and some of the places you could keep your dollars in your community. Join us in strolling our Downtown Nashua shops, and helping our small businesses in this difficult year!

This week, let’s look at the Main Street “block” bordered by Pearl and Temple streets!

Our Pearl-to-Temple gift stores include:

Fresh of Nashua
Pompanoosuc Mills
Scontsas Fine Jewelry and Home Decor


In addition to on-street metered parking, you can also park in the conveniently located High Street Parking Garage or the Elm Street Parking Garage. From there, it’s just a short walk to Main Street to begin your day of shopping! Look at this parking map for free holiday parking areas (Zone 3).
