MetroPCS coming to long-vacant space at 529 N. Seventh


The mobile phone provider metroPCS is opening a store at 529 N. Seventh, between Liberty and Allen Streets. The space has been vacant (with the occasional temp agency) for the eight years I've lived off Seventh---one of the last vacant storefronts left on the three-block stretch from the 400 to 600 blocks of Seventh.
