Bonwit Teller Store (Now Starbucks)

Bonwit Teller & Co.

Seen in: Rocky II


SW Corner of:
S. 17th St. & Chestnut St.
Philadelphia, PA 19103

“I say we get it.”

This was once a fashionable department store chain and the exterior of this Philadelphia branch was used in Rocky II as the store where Rocky purchases his black Tiger jacket and a fur coat for Adrian. In 2000, Bonwit Teller & Co. went out of business for good, but its building and surroundings are still standing and looking similar.

This busy street corner is just a few blocks away from the iconic PhiladelphiaCity Hall, visible in shots of Rocky’s morning runs; Rittenhouse Square, the park where Rocky and Adrian stroll; and Robert Balboa’s apartment house seen in Rocky Balboa.
