Our Story


Founded in 1972 as an army surplus store, our name came from the two men who founded J&H, Danny Johnson and John Hall. The original store was located on North Broadway in downtown Lexington, Kentucky. As J&H’s loyal customer base grew and evolved, J&H began offering outdoor apparel, equipment, and supplies to become a great backpacking store for any outdoors enthusiast. Even though we have changed a lot, J&H still stands above other Lexington outdoor stores by providing the best customer service in the business.

 

We are a proud member of the Grassroots Outdoor Alliance. GOA is a community of 89 independent outdoor specialty retailers and brands across the US. With GOA we are influencers in the outdoor retail industry, and have a united voice with our community as stewards of honorable business and preservation of the environment we all enjoy.
