Kaufmann's Department Store occupied a free-standing store adjacent to Miracle Mile until the late 1980s, when it vacated to replace the vacant anchor space in near-by Monroeville Mall left by the liquidation of Gimbels. Kaufmann's was soon replace by a major automobile dealership.

Across William Penn Highway is another shopping center, Jonet Plaza, constructed some time after Miracle Mile, in the late 1960s. Some other previous and current retail offerings are Service Merchandise, David Weiss, Office Depot, Lone Star Steakhouse, and Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company. A bowling alley, Miracle Lanes, occupies the space at the rear of the plaza. Firestone is located on the main level in space formerly occupied by JCPenneys Auto Center during the late 1960s and early 1970s.
