Our Story

Bjs is a leading retailer offering amazing deals on brand name merchandise for the whole family. Ever since our first store opened its doors over 40 years ago, we’ve been committed to bringing savvy shoppers the best deals on everything from fashion and beauty to toys and electronics.

It all started in 1978 when our founder, Bill Johnson, opened his first Bjs store in small town America. Bill had a vision to provide shoppers direct access to exciting brand name products at drastic markdowns. By negotiating great deals directly with manufacturers and passing the savings on to customers, Bill was able to disrupt the world of retail and usher in a new era of smart shopping.

What began as a small store rapidly grew into a nationwide phenomenon. Shoppers loved the thrill of finding their favorite brands at our unbeatable prices. As demand expanded, we opened more store locations to reach new customers hungry for incredible deals.

Today, Bjs operates over 300 stores across the country and our website delivers spectacular savings online. We’ve grown a lot over the years, but our commitment to smart shoppers stays the same. We still provide the most thrilling shopping experience in retail by offering savings opportunities that simply can’t be beat.
