Two new apparel stores are coming Downtown.
The Center City Development Corp. has two retail forgivable loan applications before it at Wednesday’s meeting from two businesses – Life is Good, which plans to sign a 10-year lease for 1,900 square feet at 100 Peabody Place, and Dress Style Studio, which plans to sign a 7-year lease for 1,800 square feet at 119 South Main.
The CCDC meets at 9 a.m. The agency’s staff has recommended loans of $40,000 for both businesses.
Life is Good plans to open in March. Dress Style Studio is looking to open in January.
Life is Good designs, prints, embroiders and distributes its own product line, which includes men’s, women’s, children’s and pet accessories, t-shirts, sweatshirts, casual sportswear and accessories. Its most popular item is the 100 percent cotton pre-washed t-shirt that sells for $25.
Dress Style Studio will be owned and managed by Tamara Sorman, who opened Shop Girl New York Downtown in November. Her store will offer a selection of the latest fashion styles, including professional attire, casual and social wear.
