There is no denying that it does "sound like great news". Did you make sure to click on their website 10 times to see the entire well researched and very meaningful list, and then spread the word to all your friends to do the same? That's what these things are for.

It does make for good press, which is welcome. However, these are usually pretty inane lists.

That being said, we do have some great shopping

The last story (about a year ago?) about Philly being a top shopping destination identified KOP as being the primary reason. Go figure.

I think its awesome! Personally its not our shopping destination due to the fact we have to drive into CC and such and parking makes it very hard to shop. You cant take a bus to shop.. lol.. I guess if you lived in CC, the shopping is perfect

Actually I've seen a lot of people on the bus, subways, etc. with shopping bags full of clothes. But yeah, appliances and such would be kinda rough.
