The tenant moving into the former longtime home of St. Jude’s religious shop has some history of its own to trumpet.
Baum’s Dancewear, which has been in business since 1887, is moving out of Center City and into 1805 E. Passyunk Ave., next to Stogie Joe’s.
“We are hoping to relocate in late 2014,” store owner Peter Cohen told us.
We were a bit off when we first reported on the new tenant in July, when we were told that it would be a dance studio. Not so, Cohen said.
“No dance studio, but a dance & theatrical supply business that has been in Center City for the last 75 years,” he said.
