Upper Darby has made a concerted effort to attract new businesses and employers to the township with the goal of providing new job opportunities for local residents, Upper Darby Mayor Tom Micozzie said in a prepared statement.
Over the past few years, we have seen the rebirth of the 69th Street Business District as a retail and entertainment destination with well-known brands such as H&M
, Puma Lab
, Burlington Coat Factory
, International House
