In the title compound, C17H15BrO2S, the 4-methylbenzene ring makes a dihedral angle of 89.01 (7)° with the mean plane [r.m.s. deviation = 0.013 (2) Å] of the benzofuran fragment. In the crystal, molecules are linked into supramolecular layers that stack along  by weak C-HO, C-H and C-S [3.364 (2) Å] interactions.
