There’s a New Furniture Store In Manayunk Called Rowhouse

Is this the beginning of a retail revival there?


For those who thought Manayunk was a black hole of bars and tipsy twentysomethings, we have signs of (retail) hope. First, there’s Nicole Miller, which has been chugging along  in its corner spot for 20 years. Then Philadelphia Runner announced it was opening a store in the former TAG Denim space (maybe in time for the Philly Marathon?) And now we’ve got Rowhouse, which officially opened this past Friday.

The shop, located at 4320 Main Street, is all furniture and home goods, and features antiques, vintage, modern and resale items. (Read: It’s like a treasure hunt for cool home finds.) I couldn’t find too much about the shop online, just this Facebook page, and phone calls weren’t answered, even by an answering machine. (I’ll blame that on post-opening craziness.)

Still, it looks like it’s worth checking out. I’ll keep you posted on my thoughts once I visit.
