|IJS opened in May, 1986 in a small building on
north Beaton Street with only Mike & Lesa Miller.
Around 1987, the store moved across the street into a larger building as the business began to grow. In 1988 IJS moved to 314 N. Main Street in a much larger building and remained there until 2003. More employees were added, and a janitorial service company was born as well as retail sales.
In 1992, a branch was opened in Ennis known as Ennis Janitorial Supply and Service Company at 1507 N. Kaufman Street. Both stores stocked about the same products and offered the same helpful, courteous service. In 2002 Ennis Janitorial was remodeled and enlarged in order to service our customers. Meshawn Miller became a vital part of this store adding gift items and embroidery capability. She worked in high school at the store and worked on service jobs.
In March, 2003 the 314 N. Main Street location was sold and IJS was on the move again. This time it was south on Main Street, to 301 N. Main St., into a 20,000 square foot building. The building was remodeled and updated before moving in. The business continues to grow now with pool chemicals, food service supplies, cleaning chemicals, and many more supplies and equipment.
Delivery service is offered at both locations without charge with our courteous delivery driver, Henry Smith who has been with the company for 16 years.
IJS-EJS, Inc. is always striving for quality products at affordable pricing with friendly service. It is our goal to service our customers in a competent, friendly manner.
