Philadelphia luxury store Boyds, an iconic Philadelphia Clothier celebrated their newly unveiled women’s ready-to-wear, handbag and shoe department section

Concept

which is now located on the entire first floor and mezzanine level on April 12, 2018 at their Chestnut Street location.


In an interview with the Menswear Industry Magazine Boyds owner Kent Gushner said “We’re repositioning women’s on both the first floor (9,000 square-feet) and the mezzanine (4,000 square-feet). It will be a dramatic setting with all new cases, fixtures and lighting, juxtaposing old and new: light contemporary cases and fixtures will contrast beautifully with our classic architecture that we are retaining.” (Source)

Fashionable guests enjoyed lite bites and cocktails as they checked out the renovated modern, well lit space which now features a light and airy staircase in the middle of the room replacing the heavy looking marble one, which leads to the mezzanine level where you’ll find shoes and bags.


Gone is the heavy marble stairs, and columns. Now there’s a great open floor plan for shopping. This photo doesn’t do it justice, but the room was a glow in the most beautiful white lite making all the colors pop


Including these cool Judith Leiber purses.
The classic Boyds Men’s Department is now located on the 2nd, with all tailored clothing to the third floor, divided into two venues: luxury/classic and young/contemporary (suits in that section will open at $595, and the department will have a different vibe and its own music).

The Bourse Marketplace Retains It’s Charm as it Renovates It’s Food Hall

The Bourse Marketplace Retains It’s Charm as it Renovates It’s Food Hall

As the City moves forward, a few of our historic business are heading in the director of new and prettier too while keeping it’s historic charm. One of those places is the popular tourist spot -The Bourse, overlooking Independence Hall.

Charm(Common creative use)

The Philadelphia Bourse was a commodities exchange founded in 1891 by George E. Bartol, a grain and commodities exporter, who modeled it after the Bourse in Hamburg, Germany. The steel-framed building – one of the first to be constructed – was built from 1893 to 1895, and was designed by G. W. & W. D. Hewitt in the Beaux-Arts style.[1] Carlisle redstone, Pompeian buff brick and terra cotta were all used in the facade. The Bourse stopped functioning as a commodities exchange in the 1960s. The structure continued to serve as an office building until 1979 when the trading space adaptively reused the space a food court.


Fast forward to 2017 and the Bourse is undergoing another transformation – to the tune of $40 million, one which will continue as a hub for tourists in the Historic Philly area, as well as office workers and locals, but as a serious food and beverage hall with 27 new vendors.

Earlier this month a press conference was held to showcase the changes as well as introduce a few of the new tenants

Chaat and Chai closed their South Philly storefront over the summer but the restaurant will reopen at The Bourse;   Bluebird Distilling plans to open a full service bar at The Bourse, currently at the Shops of Liberty Place they have a tasting room; Chef Sylva Senat of Maison 208 is opening Baby Buns, named for what his daughter calls sliders. Pasta makers Vera Pasta plan to serve lunch option, they had samples at the press conference which were delicious.  Olive with a Twist, which sells olive oils, balsamic vinegars, jams, and other gourmet pantry items,


Whenever I’m down in Old City and just want to chill, the Bourse was always my go to spot. Plus I liked the various vendors and postcard shops. It was a great hideaway with minimum offers, and now it’s going to have a better selection of food and shops.
