Thank you for taking the time to look at our store.

How was MyBeeStore Born?

I always had an interest in beekeeping but for years lacked the time or money to pursue the hobby. About 7 years ago I found myself with more time on my hands and my interest in beekeeping was rekindled.

Around this time I was introduced to my local county Beekeeping Association. They ran an “introduction to beekeeping course” over 6 weekends which covered some of the theory and practical aspects of beekeeping. This I found invaluable and I would thoroughly recommend novice beekeepers seeking out such courses and joining their local Bee Associations. A year after attending that course and  having attended some of the practical sessions at the training apiary, I felt confident enough to get my own colony!

So I needed equipment, clothing and bees……

Bee Keeping Clothing Tools and Accessories

Prices of all products relating to beekeeping seemed to range from very reasonable to very expensive. I set about finding out why this should be.

It transpired that most equipment was manufactured overseas and imported into this country. On further inspection the quality of these goods varied immensely.

We started contacting manufacturers predominately in China, India and Pakistan, gaining further information and samples.  Having decided on manufacturers that satisfied our quality requirements and at acceptable price points, we started importing.

This worked well to begin with but of course mean our range was restricted. As MyBeeStore gained in popularity we added products imported by others.

We now no longer import ourselves but concentrate on being the supermarket for the bee world!  This has many advantages for you the customer. Just like Asda or Tesco we can and do sell the same products from different suppliers. This means that if one supplier is out of stock there is likely another with stock available. This means without leaving our site you will probably find exactly what you are looking for.

Opening of My Bee Store

MyBeeStore opened in March 2017.

Our mission then, as now, is to sell safe, well-designed, beekeeping clothing and equipment at very competitive prices.

The MyBeeStore following has continued to grow and many customers asked if they could buy other beekeeping products from us.  In 2019 we added further ranges of beekeeping equipment and bee accessory sectors to our site.

MyBeeStore Today

As well as supplying traditional beekeeper clothing we wanted to introduce new innovative materials into the marketplace. These materials are lighter and are better able to control your body temperature whilst still affording the all important protection.

MyBeeStore are able to offer various styles and types of clothing at price points to suit everybody.

We do hope you enjoy the shopping experience at MyBeeStore as we move closer to the “one stop shop” that was always envisioned.

May I thank you for your continued support.

Martin.
