Lit Brothers was a moderately-priced department store based in Philadelphia. Samuel and Jacob Lit opened the first store at North 8th and Market Streets in 1891. Lits positioned itself well as a more affordable alternate to its upscale competitors Strawbridge and Clothier, John Wanamaker, and Gimbels.

Faced with growing competition in a changing retail landscape, Lit Brothers closed its doors in 1977. One of Lits larger competitors, Gimbels, built a new store in Center City as part of The Gallery Mall in 1977, and while Lits was only one block away from The Gallery, not being a direct part of the popular new complex hurt sales at its important flagship location.
