Beetles Are Us is a store that buys beetles in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. It is located in Seaside Town, and is run by a Snifit. Mario cannot buy beetles here; however, he can catch some and sell them to Beetles Are Us. To begin, Mario must first buy a Beetle Box for 50 coins, with an additional 100-coin fee if it is his first time. Mario must then go to Booster Hill and catch beetles while running down the hill in the Beetle Race minigame. After catching beetles, Mario is paid money, the amount of which depends on which types of beetles and how many he caught.
Once Mario has turned in his beetles, he must purchase another Beetle Box if he wishes to replay Beetle Race.
The store's English name, Beetles Are Us, is derived from the real-world Toys "R" Us store as well as its spinoff brands. The word "Beetles" indicates that the store is specifically focused on beetles.

- In the Japanese version, the unnamed Snifit is under the employ of someone only referred to as 「社長」 (shachō, president), implied to be Booster. This is completely erased from the English version outside of a vague reference to another person in the Snifit's line, "We run a beetle business here."
- In the Nintendo Player's Guide for Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Beetles Are Us is stated to be the "biggest beetle market in the known world."
