In 1964 two gentlemen named Bonrud and Jossart joined together to start Bon Jos women’s clothing in central minnesota. In 1996 Patti Stewart purchased the business and continued the tradition of providing quality women’s clothing and accessories. She grew the business to include more locations and added tanning beds to her stores. Patti enjoyed her work and was a vibrant person who loved helping customers look their best until her passing in 2021. At that time, Lonnie Hanson, long time general manager, continued to operate the business with the same commitment until the family was ready to sell. In March 2023, Denise Drown became the owner and is ready to continue bringing fashion to our customers with a fresh approach at both our Alexandria and Little Falls locations.
Welcome to the new BonJos website and thank you for your new or continued support! I had the pleasure of working with Patti Stewart for ten years as a sales associate at the Alexandria BonJos prior to taking ownership. I have many years of retail experience in both management and sales. Having lived in the Alexandria area for over twenty years now, I know it is a special place to call home! We raised our four daughters here and I am privileged to be a part of this wonderful community! Lonnie Hanson and I are looking forward to continuing Patti’s legacy of superior customer service while bringing new updates to both locations. We are especially excited about our new website where customers can shop for all their favorites online! We invite you to stop by our Alexandria or Little Falls shops, give us a call, or shop our new website.
We look forward to serving our customers for many years to come!
