Our Story

The Oxford Street Merchants Logo

The inspiration behind our name starts at the doorstep of 43 Oxford Street in Saint Paul, Minnesota, where our founder Lynn Johnson first opened his doors for business at Johnson Brothers in 1953.

What makes us unique is our unwavering and foundational commitment to executional excellence and our passion to inspire through the art of storytelling, brand stewardship, and enduring relationships.
