Rumor has it that Kembrel will be opening a boutique on the Main Line. Founded by three grads from Penn's Wharton School, the startup "flash sale" website has already has two brick and mortar sites downtown: one in Rittenhouse, the other in Midtown. An article by the Philadelphia Real Estate Blog says that a "third boutique in Wayne is on the drawing boards."
The suburban location would rival similarly-stocked Wayne stores like South Moon Under, Eaves, and Ellie, but with the area's concentration of colleges, it could mean there's more than enough demand to go around.
The pop-up-turned-permanent Kembrel stores house the same merchandise found on the website: men's and women's apparel, accessories, and footwear from a mix of local and up-and-coming national designers. Store inventory refreshes twice a week, while Kembrel.com features week-long pop-ups.
