Dine-in amusement center to open at Willow Grove Park Mall

Texas-based company, Nickels and Dimes Inc. plans to open a bi-level 104,000 square foot indoor family entertainment center where the old JC Penney used to be at the Willow Grove Park Mall. PREIT, the real estate trust that runs the mall, has a history of making moves such as this partnership that impact the community.

From The Bradford Era:

This latest addition is part of PREIT’s continued, strategic effort to curate customized, ever-evolving properties that drive success for its tenants and meaningfully impact their communities. Replacing department stores and introducing new uses have been key parts of PREIT’s forward-thinking strategy at Willow Grove Park for years, including several thoughtful moves designed to meet the needs of today’s consumer, including the additions of The Cheesecake Factory, Apple, Yard House, Nordstrom Rack and Primark, among others. These tenants join one of only two Bloomingdale’s stores in the region.

The facility, named Tilted 10, has a projected opening slated for 2022. There are plans for bowling, laser tag, black-light mini golf, bumper cars, virtual reality, pinball and a restaurant.

Willow Grove Park was originally opened in 1896 as an amusement park and operating until the 1975. The mall opened in 1982.
