Fashion District Philadelphia signs four 'Uniquely Philly' tenants

Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust has signed four local tenants to a special space it calls "Uniquely Philly" at Fashion District Philadelphia, which is scheduled to open this Septemeber.  The 4,647-square-foot space will house a collection of local retailers and other businesses that make products germane to Philadelphia and will have a bigger platform at Fashion District Philadelphia to showcase and sell their items. The Philadelphia organization was formed three decades ago by the Wharton Small Business Development Center and gives minority entrepreneurs access to capital, business education and economic development opportunities.
