What does B&M mean?!? (Probably dumb question...)

392 328 August 15, 2006 at 02:11 PM
I see it in titles, like "Great Deal at Target B&M", and now there is something about "Staples B&M." I've tried to think of what it could stand for and I'm coming up blank. Confused Sorry if this is a dumb question.

Brick & Mortar. The physical store, not online.
