Chain gang

A few months back, we reported that CVS Pharmacies was likely to be one of the new tenants at Moravian Cafés on Walnut Street. That still holds, and now we have word that the rest of the space that once housed such lunchtime favorites as Bitar’s is to be given over to several chain restaurants. Quiznos, Taco Bell and KFC have all written letters of intent to become tenants in the food court and are expected to sign leases soon. You’ll have to wait until September, though, to get your fill of fast food.
