Retail News: Urban Jungle is Opening a Second Location in Pennsport
Pennsport is about to get a heavy dose of greenery: Urban Jungle, the brains behind some of the lushest landscapes and urban gardens in Philly, is set to open a new location. Passyunk Post reports that following a well-received meeting with the Pennsport Civic Association, Urban Jungle has announced an expansion of their Passyunk store to a new space at 1721-1725 South Water Street.
What to expect: It’s not quite a doppelgänger of the Passyunk shop. The new location will introduce a larger emphasis on lifestyle, and it will be the operational HQ for landscaping and other services like green roofs and walls. Explains the Passyunk Post:
“Retail will only be a portion at the new operations as [owner] Alexander mentioned he wanted to focus on the landscape displays and even create a space to host various events such as wedding receptions.”
And best of all, you’ll be able to start prepping for the holidays:
“The plan is to start receiving Christmas trees in November to ramp up for the holiday season. The Water Street shop will supply the flagship on East Passyunk Avenue with trees, wreaths and garland. “
No word yet on when the new space will open, so check back for updates. We’ll be over here sketching out plans for a bio-wall at Shoppist HQ. Just kidding, but not really.
