The tattered rags that make up the Tom’s Prime Meats sign at the old butcher shop will soon be coming down, making way for a women’s clothing shop called Miss Demeanor.
A mother-daughter team that runs a store by the same name in Cape May plans to open a second location at 1729 E. Passyunk Ave., according to their realtor, Daniel Baer of City Space.
Tom’s Prime Meats has junked up the 1700 block of East Passyunk since before it closed in summer 2012. The new owners plan to completely renovate the building, said Baer. The women “have quite the following in the city, with friends, family, and regular shore patrons, so their is already a lot of excitement for them to bring the store to the city,” he said.
According to a statement from the owners:
“We’ve curated a collection of clothing and accessories from the Americas, dealing directly from the provider when possible. Miss Demeanor has clothes to get you through a day at the beach. Happy hour, first date, dinner with the girls, bbq, outdoor wedding? No problem, we’ve got that covered.”
They hope to be ready to go in the fall. Find the Facebook page for their Cape May shop here.
