For over 100 years Mitchell & Ness has been a staple in Philadelphia's retail landscape. We started as a sporting goods company and through the years we've supplied sports loving Philadelphians with everything from golf clubs to tennis balls to ski equipment to the vintage sports apparel that we provide today.
We've had a couple of different locations in 106 years, but we've always been in Center City Philadelphia. Below are images of a couple of our previous locations.
Chestnut Street (our current location)
Through the years we've championed Philadelphia's sports history and have shared every pitch, catch, basket and goal with our fellow Philadelphia sports fans. So we are thrilled to be able to share with you an exciting moment in our, and Philadelphia's, sports history.
Below is an image of the location of our new flagship store.
Our new location at 1201 Chestnut Street will open to the public the weekend of November 19 - 21, 2010. The new space will feature 2,000 square feet of retail space showcasing hundreds of vintage jerseys, tees, hoodies, jackets and accessories. Along the back there will be a custom headwear wall featuring all of your favorite M&N headwear styles. Historical sports imagery and memorabilia will be displayed throughout the store providing customers with a nostalgic trip through history. Glass display cases featuring Mitchell & Ness track shoes, golf clubs and tennis rackets commemorate our heritage as a sporting goods store.
"Our new flagship store will better reflect the Mitchell & Ness brand and our dedication to quality, detail and heritage. The new Mitchell & Ness is not only a retail store but a true destination for all sports fans visiting Philadelphia." Sean McKinney, President, Mitchell & Ness

Over the next week we will take you through the construction with pictures from start to finish. Check out the images below to see how our new space looked during it's first few days of construction.
