History[edit | edit source]

Since opening in 1961,[3] Roosevelt Mall anchors have included S. Klein, Wanamaker's, Hecht's, Strawbridge's, and Macy's. When the mall anchor was Strawbridge's, it had a bargain basement in which all furniture and goods were marked down by 80%.

The mall was originally enclosed.[3] It was redeveloped as an open-air mall in 1999 by Dewberry Capital Corp.[3]

The mall is also home to a franchise of one of Philadelphia's oldest and most notable cheesesteak restaurants, Jim's Steaks, which was founded in West Philadelphia in 1939 and also operates on South Street in Philadelphia.[4]
