This marks a return of J. Crew to Chestnut Street: The retailer was one of the original tenants in the Shops at Liberty Place.

I remember them most fondly for coming up with strange names for colors, like "flag" (which ISTR was a shade of beige).

J. Crew main store re-opened somewhere along Walnut Street recently. They are doubling down with the Factory on Chestnut.

City Fitness opening seventh Philadelphia location in Old City

City Fitness plans to open its seventh Philadelphia gym, marking the latest expansion for the homegrown chain.
The company is taking over a space previously occupied by Sweat Fitness at 45 N. 3rd St. in Old City. The three-floor, 15,000-square-foot gym is undergoing renovations and scheduled to open in November.

Speaking of which, is Equinox still going into the bottom of The Laurel when it opens?

Last I heard, yes. But the company is financially unstable and paused some expansion plans, Ft. Lauderdale was one.

Let's hope Philadelphia doesn't get paused because it will be hugely popular.

It really would be. Philadelphia doesn't really have a luxury gym option, at least that I'm aware of. One of the best parts about living in Manhattan is having an Equinox within easy walking distance pretty much anywhere below 96th Street.

My local Wawa just added self checkouts. I didn't know they were a thing but they are tremendous.

I mean, maybe this isn't a gym per se, but isn't Barry's a luxury "gym" option? Or is that just classes? It's legit across the street from Equinox is going. The retail base of the Laurel is the last piece of the building to get built.

Barry's is a pay-per-class format, and if you do it a lot it's damn expensive (like $33 a class). While Equinox is expensive, it's a catch-all space with a wide variety of classes, a weight floor, and is very, very clean. I pay for it here in New York and it's worth every penny just to avoid the hordes of people in any basic gym here in the city.

Gotcha, makes sense. I don't have a gym membership atm, but I have gone to City Fitness before and always enjoyed it. One time I saw Kevin Hart working out in the Grad Hospital one and I asked him for a photo and he said no lmao.



And to clarify: we were both standing near the entrance, I didn't like approach him while he was working out.
