Anchor Shops to Open 7,000 SF Store at Fashion District Philadelphia
PHILADELPHIA —Anchor Shops plans to open a 7,000-square-foot store at Fashion District Philadelphia, a concept which will accomodate online retailers with a brick-and-mortar location to better compete with legacy retailers. In addition, Anchor Shops has leased a 30,000-square-foot space at Moorestown Mall in New Jersey, which is also owned by PREIT. The company plans to take occupancy of both properties in the second quarter of 2020. A project of ShopFulfill, Anchor Shops was conceived to help digitally native brands by providing online retailers with a turnkey solution that enables them to benefit from a low-cost regional distribution network. Depending on the size and type of space required, brands will have the option to join Anchor Shops and its national distribution network starting at $600 per month. PREIT opened Fashion District Philadelphia in September.
