Is Bloomingdale’s Coming to the Gallery?

_DSC8189 (Custom)HughE Dillon over at PhillyChitChat says that the Bloomie’s folks have been here four times to look at the Burlington Coat Factory space, and the last time they brought lawyers and a design team.

Gallery owner PREIT did not return an official call for comment, though one person there said he didn’t know anything about it but that he wasn’t approved to comment. Dillon has a really reliable source, though, and the last tip he got from said source panned out exactly as predicted.

Lawyers and a design team? At least one half of this equation is seriously considering it.

    Here are two reasons why this is bogus: 1) Bloomingdale’s would not go into a transitional area. 2) lawyers rarely meet w/ designers ON site.

    This from the blog that claimed an announcement about the old Daffy’s building would come in two weeks — that was how many months ago?

    Bogus funny. Everyone doubted my story about Walgreen’s going into Borders too and well it’s opening in June.
