When was CONCEPTS founded?
Concepts opened its first store in 1996.
Concepts opened its first store in 1996 in Harvard Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts. From our early beginnings in footwear, street and skate culture, Concepts has sought to develop an original and diverse point of view as original retail curators.
Through retailing emergent products from opinion leading brands and collaborating with the largest names in sneakers and clothing, we’ve continued to push the Concepts brand globally. As we expand into the international market, we are reminded of the place it all started in Cambridge, MA.
