ANNE KLEIN HAS CLOSED, L&I Sticker on Bettie Page, & UTRCHT ON THE MOVE – Walnut Street Stories
You know I love my Walnut Street Center City Stroll’s, stories are everywhere, and yesterday was no different.
I got up close and discovered they have packed up lock stock and barrell and left Walnut Street. Of course I instagramed
tweeted and facebooked that sh8t as soon as possible cause I don’t think Anne Klein gave our City a fair chance, especially after coming into town,
completely renovating the Jones New York to create a vintage Anne Klein store.
About an hour later Philly Inquirer Fashion Maven Elizabeth Wellington tweeted that Stuart Weitzman is going to fill the old Anne Klein/Jones of NY space on Walnut Street
I predict he’s going to check out the space when he visits on
On Wednesday, June 12 at 7:00 p.m., as he’s appearing at the National Museum of American History to inaugurate their new speaker series, Dreamers and Doers, with entrepreneur and shoe designer Stuart Weitzman. (which I just happened to get an email about earlier in the day.)
Blick Art Materials has acquired Utrecht Art Supplies and now the store at 2020 Chestnut Street is merging with the store on the 1300 block of Chestnut Street on June 2. If only Joan Shepp wanted Chestnut Street cause this place has big windows. OK I have more stories about new retail in and around Walnut Street but I’m outta here. Have an awesome day, go out and ignore those clouds. Be safe, HughE
