I was trying to order some items from them and left 3 voice messages and 2 emails over a week without a return call or email. Something must be going there on or they don't need the business. Sad, they have some good products and services but just lack good customer relations it seems like. Seems impossible to even place an order with them...

I had a chat with Walter yesterday. He left and went to driving trucks which did not work out. The owner of busboys, a dentist near redding closed it. I had written the owner earlier this year asking if he wanted help cataloguing what was left to sell it but he never contacted me that I am aware of.

Glad I read this, The way out of date website was a tad alarming but their prices sounded good for the sheet metal I'm looking for. It's too bad they went down hill... I always enjoyed their logo

Not a customer - but widespread confirmed reports that this firm is no longer in business, including an actual visit by a Samba member in 2016

Anyone ever found out what happened to Bus Boys back stock? Just curious if they sold it or if it is sitting in a warehouse somewhere rotting, I have been a loyal customer since the late 80's and went to check on them and I see they have closed up shop Sad

I don't recall the details, but the real talent from Bus Boys left and formed Wolfgang Int. BB went downhill from there.
