The iconic Wholey’s smiling fish sign has looked down over the Strip District for nearly 25 years, but it will soon need to find a new home.
The building which housed Wholey’s Wholesale until 2007 will soon be redeveloped, which means the sign needs to come down.
Jim Wholey, president of Wholey’s, said he wants the public’s help in determining where the smiling fish’s new home should be.
“That’s part of Pittsburgh, that’s part of the fabric,” Wholey said. “We owe it to Pittsburgh to let them decide where that sign’s gonna go.”
