A cash-for-gold business, Jewels of the Main Line, will be moving in soon to 38 Rittenhouse Place in Ardmore.
"It’s obviously not our first choice for a retailer," commented Heidi Tirjan, Lower Merion Township retail coordinator, earlier this week.
The Rittenhouse Place property, which used to house Chairloom, has been vacant since the upholstery company moved to a larger space on E Spring Avenue about six months ago.
The storefront is a fairly small space, and the township had a hard time finding a business that would take it, Tirjan said.
The owner of the property leased the building to the precious metals company on a month-to-month basis. So the good news, Tirjan said, "is that whenever we do get a retailer for that space, [the property owner] doesn't have to keep them."
Jewels of the Main Line will be Ardmore's second precious metals broker. is the other. (.)
