    Default Local Brick and Mortor Bee Shops location help

    I am looking for names of your local bee supply shops that you would go to get your beekeeping stuff. There is no real good way to do this. My wife sells Bee plates and sun catchers etc. Our local stores love it. She has a rep that markets her stuff but there is no real list of bee keeping stores. She could sell to Mann lake type and they would add them to their catalog etc but, the bee stores would get a better deal directly from her and make more money themselves. So if you would PM me your local stores or the names of the local B&M bee shops that you know of would be great. She would send them a catalog of her bee related products and they can decided if they want to carry them. Have not met a bee keeping shop owner that does not want more info yet. These sell like hotcakes to us Bee Keepers.

    To my knowledge, there are NO local supply companies. The closest to me is in either Rosenburg, or Alvin, I believe. Those are both 100 miles away. Paris is a full day's drive.

    But here's a thought: At one time, it was your local Feed 'n Seed that carried the basics for beeks. My local FnS still carries the sort of thing you are describing. So does my local nursery/garden store. The local gift shop is interested in this kind of thing. The local Chamber of Commerce/Ag sells a few odds and ends, too. I've even had a local pharmacy interested in selling my honey! Pack up some samples and go door knocking. You'll be surprised at who is interested.

    Good luck!

    The local Co-op here has started selling basic beekeeping stuff (hive boxes, frames, entrance reducers and feeders, etc.). I don't think they keep great numbers in stock and probably have to order some things (which is what most of us around here have to do anyways). But it is a big store, and it is in front of a lot of people which might generate more interest in beekeeping.
