Starting out as a mail order company in 1947, Spencer’s opened its first retail store in 1963 at New Jersey’s Cherry Hill Mall. From the outset, Spencer's quickly became an oasis within the mall environment offering our guests an entertaining experience both through its merchandising and product mix, and grew to a national chain by the mid-70’s. In 2003, under new management, Spencer's lifted the bar higher and set out to reinvent itself. Remaining true to its roots, the reinvention process remained focused on Spencer's strong history and commitment to irreverence, humor and fun. The result of this reinvention set Spencer's on the path to greatness in a subtle shift from Spencer Gifts to Spencer's in newly re-designed funky, industrial spaces with an award-winning downtown club look.
