Come browse through the summer merchandise offered by J. McLaughlin during this two-day event. The company was founded in 1977 by brothers Jay and Kevin with a mission to create a new American sportswear brand that offers two key components: classic clothes with current relevance and a retail environment with a neighborhood feel.

Sunday’s sale also coincides with Castine’s Bastille Day festivities in which the town celebrates its French heritage. J. McLaughlin will bring lots of white options for those last-minute clothing purchases for Castine’s Picnic en Blanc that evening.
