Signs for Alo Yoga are up on Walnut Street as expected but also signs for Tempur-Pedic, I think on the 1700 block? I don’t recall seeing that announced before.

Over in Old City, the beer garden attached to Sto’s doesn’t seem to cause any problems. I‘be never heard anything bad about the beer garden west of City Hall. I doubt there will be issues over in Rittenhouse.

Tempur-Pedic, not exciting, but another retail spot filled.

(They have good pillows though).

The architecture was key about those lost buildings.

We were kinda expecting that, given the crowd that Sto's can draw. But it's actually really cool. I've not heard of any issues over there but I'm sure someone who lives in the direct vicinity might have a different opinion. We hang out there from time to time and it's fun.

The beer gardens around center city are a great asset. I welcome the one on Walnut for the time being

I also don't find Walnut Street to be mediocre. It's not 5th Avenue, but still a big step up from mediocre.



For Philly's size, and in a metro area its size, Walnut Street is, IMO, mediocre. Yoga joint and mattress retail the latest offerings on the city's premier shopping ''avenue'' of a few blocks.

To be fair, especially in 2023 when the big city retail scene is a lot weaker across the US (and much of the globe), Philadelphia is at least holding its own.

Also, major metro areas in the Sun Belt, like Atlanta, Houston and Dallas have no bona fide urban luxury retail corridor to speak of; Walnut Street really only maintains company with about 5 or 6 others nationwide in that regard.

It's going to be a tenuous period in urban retail for the foreseeable future, with a storm of demographic trends converging. So long as Walnut maintains occupancy to the extent that it has during this tumultuous time, that's a huge win in my book.

I disagree with your statement on those cities. Uptown Houston (Galleria) has luxury retail that would exceed the best Phildelphia has to offer in my view. Highland Park Village in Dallas would be another example.

I think they mean a retail street, not a mall like the Galleria.
