Marshalls clothing store is scheduled to hold an 8 a.m. grand opening tomorrow at the Metropolitan development, bringing another large retailer to the center city.
The Metropolitan is located on Kings Drive and Kenilworth Avenue. Many center city residents have yearned for more retail stores in the area, ever since large department stores left uptown in the 1980s in favor of suburban shopping centers.
Over the past year, Target, Best Buy and Home Depot have all opened stores in Metropolitan. The development's upcoming stores include Trader Joe's, West Elm and Modern Salon & Spa.
The Marshalls store fill feature a shoe “megashop” and an in-store boutique dubbed The Cube, which features trendy designer labels.
Marshalls says the first customers to visit the Metropolitan store will receive a reusable shopping bag.
