Strawbridge and Clothier is a department store found in the northeastern United States with stores in Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. The main store is located in downtown Philadelphia at the Gallery Mall.

[edit]

History

The store began as a dried goods store and was founded by Quakers Justus Clayton Strawbridge (1838-1911) and Issac Hallowell Clothier (1838-1911) in Philadelphia in 1862. In 1868 Strawbridge & Clothier purchased a 3-story brick building on the northeast corner of Market and 8th Streets in downtown Philadelphia, which had been Thomas Jefferson's office in 1790 while he served as Secretary of State, and opened their first store. But soon the old building was replaced by a new 5-story department store offering a variety of fixed price merchandise under one roof. In 1928, this building was replaced by a new store and became one of the anchors in 1977 of The Gallery, an urban mall connecting Strawbridge & Clothier with Gimbels.

Strawbridge & Clothier was bought by May Department Stores Company in 1996 (13 stores) and operated under the Hecht division. Most stores now operate as Strawbridge's, but some retain their original names.
