Y'know that one church in the shadow of The Radian, 40th and Sansom? Yeah, that one. According to this article from the DP, it's been empty and is scheduled to be replaced with shiny, brand new retail. Three of the four available spaces have been leased to Philadelphia Chutney Company, Whirled Peace Frozen Yogurt and Dunkin' Donuts. So if you're tired of Bridge Cafails, if the DD on Walnut was too far or if you've just needed a reason to see what's behind that McDonald's, there's this. When can we expect the new shops though?
