I always wonder why is that. After all, UO is supposed to be Philadelphia-based.


Not "supposed to be" it is Philadelphia-based and always has been. He and his ex, Judy Wicks, who was a pretty big restaurant person, started the Free People store in the 4300 block of Locust. Later, mostly in the 80s,
that store morphed in the very first Urban Outfitters store in the 4000 block of Locust. Penn students and staff made it huge success. The next store was at 18th and Walnut( in the Rensaleer mansion)where Anthro is now.

Hi! If all goes well, I will be in the area of the Gallery Mall and Market the second half of Friday to early afternoon on Saturday (November 27th/28th). What is the status of the Gallery Mall nowadays? Is the place still half-closed like it was in the spring? I usually buy lottery at the Nuts Plus place at street level and had eaten at the food court when it still had life.

It's should be all closed by now. It's slated for major renovation and renaming. It probably won't be ready in its new form for a couple of years.

Actually, most of the stores on the bottom two levels of the Gallery's west half remain open right now. Maybe Level 2 as well. One of them, Tiffany's Bakery, relocated from the east side food court. The west side food court, however, is now largely empty.

Tbh, I have not to used Jefferson Station in a while so I forgot that Tiffany's was moving there.

I was at the half-closed Gallery Mall on Friday afternoon. The Nuts Plus store, where I bought some scratch tickets, was still indeed open for business. Also, I noticed a major construction project at Market Street and 11th Street. Any idea what's getting built there?

It's shopping center. I'm not sure if there's going to be a residential component.

I want to add something.
I happened to pass by that Brickstone-soon-to-be Target development on Chestnut.
All the external facade is up! I couldn't believe that! Now it just looks like unfinished building from outside!
Soon that dark district will be bright at night. You know how Target likes to have everything LED-bright!
