More Philadelphia Retail News: Camper Coming, and That Darned Daffy’s Space

4-225Yesterday we broke the news that Madewell and Theory just signed leases on Walnut Street. Madewell will replace Arden B at 1716 Walnut, while Theory will go into 1616 Walnut.

Now Racked Philly reports that the Spanish shoe brand Camper is coming to town–at least, that’s what fashion bible WWD has to say. If the Philly store is anything like the new Nendo-designed Camper store in New York (pictured; photo by Jesse Goff), it’ll be pretty incredible.

Meanwhile, we continue to await the news of which store–or stores–will be moving into the Daffy’s space. We did post a countdown clock based on what a broker told us, but that just made readers hostile because we blew past the deadline by eons. What we believe now, based on multiple tips, is that there will be more than one retailer in the space, and one of those will be some variety of Nordstrom.
