Our Story


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 continued operating on the core principles of a customer centric store while building generational relationships that we still enjoy today with many of our clients and their families.

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 staff insists on treating each customer with gracious hospitality and service, insuring them a memorable shopping experience. These qualities are our DNA and guide us moving forward.
