Rosenblum’s History

Our grandfather, Frank Rosenblum, founded Rosenblum’s in 1898. He started his business in downtown Jacksonville with only a pushcart full of wares and a heart filled with determination. After the Great Fire in 1901, Frank opened one of the first men’s clothing stores in Jacksonville. Frank’s three sons, Herman, John, and Sheldon would later join the business. By the 1960′s, Rosenblum’s was selling both men’s and ladies’ fashions, had four Jacksonville locations, and was considered to be one of the finest stores in the country.

In the early 1980′s, Sheldon’s two sons, Bob and Richard joined the company, and the third generation was prepared to bring continuity to the business. With one store in the San Jose area, Rosenblum’s continued to operate on the same principles of excellent customer service and well-selected merchandise, as inherited from the first two generations. In 1996, Rosenblum’s opened its exciting new location on San Jose Boulevard, incorporating a beautiful view of the St. Johns River.

In March of 2003, we proudly announced the opening of a second location on Third Street in Jacksonville Beach. Rosenblum’s is proud to provide the finest selections in business, evening, and casual wear for men. Our professional staff insists on treating each customer with gracious hospitality and service, insuring them a memorable shopping experience. Rosenblum’s is grateful for the support of its customer base, which has given us the opportunity to be a well-respected third generation family-owned business in the Jacksonville retail community.
