Offerings include some of Center City's first big box retailers, along with design and independent boutiques. New entrants to the market include Nike, Columbia Sportswear, Round 1, City Winery, Target, Mom’s Organic Market, P.J. Clarke’s and the relocation of the Marketplace Design Center, as well as unique boutiques found only in Center City including Lapstone & Hammer.
