Madewell in Center City pushes back opening date

Chunky sweater-wearing, denim-adoring, fall fashion-awaiting fans of Madewell will have to wait just a little longer for the new store to open in Rittenhouse Square.

A rep told us Wednesday that the opening has been pushed back to Tuesday, Oct. 8, a few weeks behind the original date announced. We're told the grand opening celebration will also take place that day.

The Madewell store will be located at 1716 Walnut St.

Hours will be 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday- good for shoppers who want to get early starts to their morning retail routines.
