Strawbridges As Casino?

Foxwoods casino officials are eyeing a shuttered department store as another possible location for their downtown Philadelphia slots parlor.
Foxwoods spokeswoman Maureen Garrity tells The Philadelphia Inquirer that the casino's investment group is looking at the former Strawbridge & Clothier store at Eighth and Market streets.
