Mitchell & Ness to open store at XFINITY Live!

XFINITY Live! Philadelphia, the new dining and entertainment district currently under construction on the former site of the Spectrum, is adding a 700-sq. ft. Mitchell & Ness retail store, as part of the Philly MarketPlace.

The Mitchell & Ness store, which will feature authentic and replica sports jerseys from legendary and classic sports heroes, will be constructed using reconditioned relics of the Spectrum, including the actual hardwood from the basketball court and the hockey dasher boards.

“Mitchell & Ness is synonymous with classic sports in this die-hard sports town,” said Comcast-Spectacor President Peter Luukko. “We know our fans are going to love visiting the Mitchell & Ness store and reliving some of their favorite Spectrum sports moments. We are looking forward to a tremendous partnership with Mitchell & Ness.”

“This boutique Mitchell & Ness store will be a true showpiece in the heart of XFINITY Live!,” said Reed Cordish, of The Cordish Companies. “We are honored that they have chosen to join the district.”

“We’re excited for Mitchell & Ness to be a part of this revolutionary new concept in shopping, dining and entertainment on the grounds of such a storied location,” said Mitchell & Ness President Sean McKinney. “The Spectrum was home to some of the most remarkable moments in Philadelphia sports history and we will keep those legendary memories alive, not only through our merchandise, but by incorporating elements of the former basketball court and hockey rink into the store itself. Mitchell & Ness will help be a reminder of the site’s history for future generations.”
