The details are a bit sketchy so far, but we’ve heard that the new place will be a shop that’s going to be run by an artist – something like an art gallery, but also selling crafts and other items.
We’ll update with more details once we hear back from the new store owner. Meanwhile, it’s good news for such a quick turnaround, especially considering the odd, angular configuration of the store. And maybe some retail activity on that end of Passyunk can help drive foot traffic on that end for the Second Saturday events at B2 across the street.
This section of paper probably doesn’t help the squelch the rumors about the store’s past.
