Roosevelt Mall

Roosevelt Mall is a medium-sized outdoor shopping mall, located along PA 73 (Cottman Avenue) between Bustleton Avenue and the Roosevelt Boulevard in the Castor Gardens neighborhood of Northeast Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It is anchored by a large, 3-level department store on its east end, that currently houses Macy's. When it was Strawbridge's, it had a bargain basement in which all furniture and goods were marked down by 80%. Sears operates a full-line department store across Bustleton Avenue from the mall itself. Though not officially part of the mall, it also acts as a draw to the shopping center. The Sears store was once a Gimbels Department store, and then a Stern's Department store.

The general area was also at one time home to a Lit Brothers department store, which later became a Clover discount department store and a J.C. Penney department store, as well as an AMC 8 Orleans Theatres, which opened in 1963 as William Goldman's Orleans Theatre. Across from Sears where the AMC Orleans used to be, a new Target opened in 2009. It is owned and managed by Centro Properties Group.

Current anchors
  • Macy's (opened as S. Klein, became John Wanamaker, Hecht's (1995), Strawbridge's (1997) and Macy's (2006).)
