Philly is currently #2, ahead of Chicago, according to Wikipedia.

Yesterday as I was zipping by on a bus, I caught a glimpse of a coming soon sign for <something, something> family department store. I regret I didn't catch the name. I'm guessing that new tenant will take up some or all of the former C21 space.

EDIT: The tenant named on the "coming soon" signage over on the western section is SHOPPERS WORLD, with the taglines "Always New, Always for LESS!" and "Your Family Department Store!" The sign appears in the window to the left of the former Century 21 Market St entrance.

Who the heck is Shoppers World? They're in several states, mostly in the mid-atlantic, but their only PA store thus far is on Aramingo Ave:

3399 Aramingo Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19134 • (215)291-4923, (215)291-4924

COMING SOON • Fashion District Philadelphia, 821 Market Street (#1130), Philadelphia, PA 19107

Under CEO Sam Dushey, NY-based Shoppers World is in its 3rd generation of family ownership.

Shoppers World... That sounds promising... Does Macerich even try to attract better retailers, or do retailers actually just turn their back on Philadelphia?

They can't get a Home Goods, Michael's, Crate & Barrel, Zara, Lego World, The Real Real, or any legitimate / solid retailer to fill this space?

Believe me, people are trying but retailers just aren't interested in expanding right now. Hardly Philly specific either.

Eh, they weren't exactly flocking to Philadelphia before the pandemic either. At large, sure retail is struggling, but zooming in, Philadelphia is definitely not in the minds of many retailers, (for many reasons). But I hope in the coming years with all the new construction, the city will see a surge in commercial (and restaurant) activity. It would be nice to steal some thunder from KoP or Cherry Hill.
