1700 block of CHESTNUT STREET GETS AN AMERICAN EAGLE, PLUS CHARLIE MANUEL WANTS TO SAY GOOD BYE FRIDAY 12:30pm


Center City’s new fashion row 16th to 20th Street is getting hotter. Last year boutique store Knit Wit joined South Moon Under to sell fashionable threads on the 1700 block of Chestnut Street. Camper Shoes just opened at 1734 Chestnut St.

 Now I’ve just been told that American Eagle is going into the old space that was occupied by
Victoria’s Secret at 1721 Chestnut St Philadelphia, PA 19103

 My tipster tells me to look for a late fall opening, just in time for the busy holiday season.

 You can still find a Victoria’s Secret shop inside the Shops of Liberty Place at 17th and Chestnut Streets.

 Kinda depressing, not only is summer nearly over, but the calendar store has
opened up in the Shops of Liberty Place at 17th and Chestnut Streets. to remind us that another new year is upon us. They also carry other novelty
gifts, cards, appointment books and fun stuff.

SO LONG CHARLIE: Tomorrow,  Friday, August 23, the beloved former Phillies manager, Charlie Manuel, who helped end the
city’s quarter of a century long championship drought, is holding his final
radio show in the Rotunda at The Shops at Liberty Place. Friday , August 23, Manuel will be broadcasting live from 12:30PM to 1:30PM. Come by and wish him well.(above with Missy Manuel at the Convenant House Night of Broadway earlier this year)


Confirmed: Uniqlo Is Coming to Center City. I now too have it from a very reliable source that the fashion store Uniqlo will be coming to 1608 Chestnut Street in spring 2014. I stopped by after shooting the new American Eagle store to see if there was any notices about it, and they’re werent. I came home and found this article on Philly Mag’s Property, so that’s two sources right?
