Best of Philly 2007: New Clothing Chain, A.C.
The Pier Shops at Caesars, 1 Atlantic Ocean
Atlantic City, New Jersey 08401
As Center City residents still (yawn) circulate rumors about Walnut Street getting its very own Barneys Co-op, etc., Atlantic City, of all places, came up with our most coveted chain. Last winter, super-trendy Scoop NYC arrived at the Pier at Caesars, bringing with it Diane Von Furstenberg shifts, Tory Burch tunics, Joie jeans, Tom Ford shades, zebra-stripe ballet flats, and our favorite pick for this summer, Jerome Gruets orange-with-rainbow-straps beach bag exactly the kind of merch that sells out in minutes in Manhattan, but that always seems available when you visit A.C.
