We’ve been closely following Center City’s Bloomingdale’s Outlet since before the doors opened to the public (we even popped by the store for a revisit last week to see how things were looking). And it’s back on our radars today due to a robbery Tuesday night at the store’s outpost at the Shops at Liberty Place.

According to the Philadelphia Police Department, around 7:30pm on February 16, nine black males with tattoos on their faces entered the store just before closing and stole 32 pairs of jeans. (Other news outlets have reported that the suspects were wearing ski masks.) The estimated value of the stolen merchandise is approximately $3,600. They fled the store east on Chestnut from 17th Street with the stolen merchandise in a yellow bag. 

We’ve reached out to the Bloomingdale’s Outlet Store and will keep you posted as information comes in.
