Best & Less was founded by Berel Ginges in January 1965, by occupying part of the ground floor of the department store "Snows" which was in the process of closing down. Prior to trading as Best & Less, the store was known as "Shenows". Best & Less officially opened their first store in Parramatta on 27 May 1965.
Best & Less was known for its frugal in-store appearance, with minimal fixtures, and its advertising tagline was "You don't pay for any fancy overheads". The ads often featured Joy Muir, then president of the Australian Housewive's Association, delivering the line to cameras.
In April 1998, Best & Less was acquired by Pepkor. The acquisition by Pepkor has enabled Best & Less to expand to 180 stores (November 2009), Best & Less now has 186 stores located throughout Australia.
The current Best&Less head office is located in Leichhardt, New South Wales.
