From the flagship store on Market Street in the heart of Philadelphia, Strawbridge & Clothier strove to meet the needs of its customers for more than a century. Author Margaret Strawbridge Butterworth charts the history of Philadelphia’s iconic Strawbridge & Clothier, including vivid stories from past employees as she invites you to join the “Store Family.”

Jenkintown was once home to a Strawbridge & Clothier at the corner of Old York Road and Rydal Road. For our historical coverage of the iconic building, you can click here.
