I would rather another CVS than another cell phone store.
Too much generic stuff going in many places.

The white plywood on the first floor is where the Orange Theory gym will be.
1. I want to correct myself on the information.
This weekend I found out that the one space on the bottom floor of Liberty place is still going to be Godiva. But new and improved I believe.
Orange Theory is going to be on the second floor close to the salon and GNC.
2. Also the Bloomie Outlets have already put signs on the plywood that it will be opening next month.
3. The Under Armour building seems to be progressing. They actually opened some of the faux windows for real windows. I have a feeling that this will be done before March next year and before the building beside it (ex lulu lemon bldg) is completed.
4. Last but not least, everybody quick get your boots, jackets and what not in City Sports since the stores are in liquidation. Another Sorel boots since winter comes wont hurt.

And most importantly, the AT&T store at 15th and Walnut is almost finished

Vetri to sell restaurants to Urban Outfitters

I didn't realize Vetri's MO was to get rich by bringing what was a decent set of restaurants to malls Hard Rock Cafe style. Not sure exactly what this means, but over the years (and through changes in management), these places will deteriorate. Corporations are only good at making money, not at serving good food...and that's when the corp was at least a veteran in the food industry. What a disappointment.

I have mixed feelings about it. The one positive I see, personally, is if they emphasize that this is all from Philly and not some generic brand from XYZ, America. If it raises our profile, nationally, it's difficult for me not to be for it.

Vetri is already rich.

I personally don't think it matters if it comes from Philly or Alaska. Quality, scale, and finances all play a part in making a good restaurant. Vetri just sold out to make more money (despite already being rich) and while the folks in Texas may think the pizza is better than the usual Texas slop that's called pizza, it will be ok...and it will deteriorate over years as the corporation cuts costs on ingredients to save money, among other shortcuts. That's beside the fact that the culture of a good restaurant (which makes it good) is typically pretty small. Something that can't be repeated. Just my opinion.

Your last point could not be truer. Who, in ten years or less, will remember anything about Georges Perrier or Jean-Marie LaCroix? How many remember them even now?

Blah, anytime I pass by the building I always mourn the fact that such a beautiful building with lots of huge display windows is used for such a phone store that everybody is switching over from.
I had never seen Verizon FIOS store across the street have more than 10 customers inside (as oppose to Apple store).

Both are such disappointments. A Microsoft Store would have been a lot cooler where the Verizon Store is because at least it would create more foot traffic at that spot.

O well.

I did not think about that! Yeah a Microsoft store or Samsung store will be cooler.
