Best Sellers in Philadelphia, PA By Reecy Pontiff

Philadelphia is a city of contrasts: historic port, college town and self-proclaimed “Birthplace of Independence,” where tradition works in tandem with cutting-edge.

The neighborhoods of Philadelphia are their own insular little worlds. Folks are fiercely loyal to their districts, giving this metropolis a small-town feel. Without Wall Street and the overwhelming tourism
of Manhattan, Philadelphia is more blue-collar than blue chip.

Philadelphia retailers concentrate more on affordability, reflecting the frugal nature of its citizens. Philadelphians want a deal, and the five shops we introduce you to aim to deliver both quality and value.
