Sephora is coming to Chestnut Street
For the last three or four years, I’ve been saying to my friends, “You know, I really can’t believe that there isn’t a Sephora in Center City someplace.” I’ve only been able to get my fix of that make up mecca on trips to King of Prussia (a place I hate visiting) or Cherry Hill (I’m not too fond of it out there either). Two years ago I took a trip out to Pittsburgh with a couple of friends and was stunned to discover that even they had a small Sephora located in one of the neighborhoods. I began to think that the Sephora Corporation had something against Philly.
Then, walking down Chestnut Street on Saturday evening with my friend Shay, on the way to see Lookingglass Alice, I saw a sign that made stop short and gasp. Sephora is coming to the space where Pay/Half used to be. This is slightly dangerous for me, as that is a mere three blocks from my home. But I’m thrilled to know that I’ll no longer have to trek to the suburbs for my Sephora fix. It’s also another interesting sign of the way Chestnut Street is changing to become more akin to Walnut Street.
