The new J.Crew factory will lure you outside the city lines of Philadelphia

Racked no longer publishes. Thank you to everyone who has read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head to Vox.com, where our staff covers consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

the Plymouth Reunion Shopping Center probably isn’t part of your usual purchases, but that may be about to change. The ho-hum mall, whose mainstays are Macy’s and Boscov’s, is set to receive a J. Crew Factory later this season. “We are J.Crew Factory,” the construction signage reads. “We’re everything you love at J.Crew and we have deals every day. Come say hello when we open later this fall.”

While the new store location will remain some kind of loot (it’s a 30 minute drive from the city center to Plymouth Meeting) it’s a lesser evil than the ride to the J.Crew Factory store in Limerick’s misnamed Philadelphia Premium Outlets. Will the addition of J.Crew Factory be enough to lure you to the Plymouth Meeting Mall? Ring in the comments.
