One person’s loss is another’s gain, and this adage holds true for neighborhoods, too. Case in point: Manayunk, which loses one its best stores, Meadowsweet Mercantile, today. The picture-perfect vintage/reclaimed/handmade home and lifestyle shop officially closed its Main Street location yesterday, though it will be having a major moving sale this weekend (more on that later). The shop is relocating to Old City, and will soft-open at 47 North 2nd Street on Friday, May 1st.
About that moving sale: Head to the Manayunk location (4390 Main Street) this Friday and Saturday from 12pm to 5pm to score some deals on the shop’s coolly rustic merch.

Macy’s in Suburban Square. | Google Maps.
Suburban Square might be getting a Madewell next month, but the open-air shopping center is losing its department store. A rep from Macy’s confirmed that the company will be terminating its Ardmore lease in early 2016. The store will continue operations throughout 2015. Expect a final clearance sale around March of next year (these usually last about eight weeks, according to the rep), and a final closing around April.
No word on what will be taking its place, but stay tuned.
