Pier 1 Imports started as a single store in San Mateo, California in 1962. Our first customers were post-World War II baby boomers looking for beanbag chairs, love beads and incense. Pier 1 has carried a wide selection of merchandise through the years, from chocolate covered ants to clothing lines to life-size Spanish suits of armor. Pier 1 established its corporate headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas in 1966. By then, there were 16 store locations with a merchandise mix of incense and other popular novelty items of the time.
