BREAKING: Uniqlo Is Coming to Center City

We have it from a very reliable source that the fashion store Uniqlo will be coming to 1608 Chestnut Street in spring 2014.

That space is currently occupied by the Art Institute. It’s a bit of a strange choice for Uniqlo: The company tends to prefer a corner for a big exposure. But it’s a large space inside, and the location was a retail space before when it was Filene’s Basement.
