Wish List: Philadelphia Shopping Additions

I had a nice and relaxing Christmas with my family in the Philadephia suburbs. Perhaps it’s just me, but whenever we’re in the ‘burbs I want to shop. Maybe it’s because there’s little else to do, or maybe because there are so many stores clustered in one small area that aren’t in the city (or aren’t convenient to me in the city). After extensive field research, I have concluded that these additions will greatly liven up the Philadelphia downtown shopping experience. At least for me:

1. SEPHORA. I cannot tell you how much I want a Sephora actually in the City of Philadelphia, not just at King of Prussia. It will improve the quality of my life immensely. I found a posting on Craigslist saying that a store will be opening in Philadelphia within the next year…keep hope alive!

2. Kohl’s. There is one in the Northeast, but that doesn’t help me out. I don’t love it as much as I love Target, but there’s nothing wrong with having some great choices when it comes to quality discount shopping. Great variety of goods, cool cosmetics lines…hmm, perhaps you are seeing a theme with my wishlist.

By the way, has anyone heard any news about what may take over the empty space formerly occupied by Strawbridge’s at the Gallery

    well, strawbridges has been completely bought out by macy’s. so welcome macy’s into all old strawbridges facilities (yes, king of prussia currently has two macy’s). ulta is also a really good spot for cosmetics and we could use one of those too.

    I heard that they are going to put a Boscov’s into the old Strawbridge’s space on Market Street. I am totally with you, wishing for a Sephora in Center City. I wonder if Blue Mercury and the MAC store on Walnut Street keeps them from opening there.
