We also maintain a formal training department to keep our sales professionals up to speed on the latest technologies and products, so that we can answer every question to your satisfaction.

Large Selection

B&H maintains ample stock of many manufacturers' full product lines, from highly popular brands to obscure, hard-to-find accessories. Our only concern is having the item you need when you need it. And thanks to our precise inventory tracking, if a product is listed as being in stock, you can be sure we have it available for you.

History

We opened our original storefront in 1973, and our reputation for extensive inventory and intelligent conversation began with our first customer.

We grew from a small photography shop in Manhattans Financial District to a major supplier of photo, video, and audio equipment on 17th Street, with customers returning again and again for our low prices and unequaled reliability. The New Millenniums explosion of affordable technology brought new lines of computers, personal electronics, and home entertainment, as we opened our SuperStore on 34th Street and our cyber-doors at BandH.com. We continue to expand to meet your needs with showrooms, classes, educational and social media content, and as always, our unparalleled inventory and service.

Our Roots

The husband-and-wife partners ('B. and H.'), opened their original namesake shop with one employee, in lower Manhattan, in 1973. They sold film, cameras, and processing materials. What started out as a small storefront and black and white ads in photography magazines, grew into our larger store at 17th Street which attracted a loyal customer base of photo, video, and audio professionals. In the early days of mail-order, when few could be trusted, B&H developed a reputation for honesty and genuine products, and the business grew by word of mouth. B&H's business continued to grow into the diverse and engaging company we are today, serving customers worldwide on our popular and highly rated website and at our 34th Street "Superstore".
