Mensagem:  Tiago, I agree with you.   If we are talking about something that is inside the area of the Square, then it is "in".

To me, "on" means the store is on a street that forms the square and "at" is more vague than either "in" or "on".  I don't think that choosing one or the other would create any confusion of meaning.  

There is a bicycle shop at the Square.  (I doubt that the store is inside the perimeter of the Square, so it must be on a street facing the Square.)
I met a Canadian at the Square.  (Maybe I met him in the Square, and maybe I met him on a street facing it.)
