What exactly is The Loop?
The Loop is a collective of three small businesses who all happen to be mom-owned, local to Melrose, MA, and sustainability-focused. A family-friendly one-stop shop offering a convenient way to rent tools, toys and transportation gear, in a space you want to hang out in. Together we've created a modern-day general store that flips consumerism on its head. We are -
The Ride Cafe - a bike and family travel shop,
The Toyary - a toy lending library,
Lend and Mend - a library of things & repair space
Together, we have a mission to shape a better future by making sustainable living more accessible and convenient for busy people.
Bring the kids to play while you get your bike tuned up, pick up a household refill or rental, have a drink at the Loop counter, and just relax with friends.
