Another Bud’s Warehouse Review from First-Time Visitor

The reviews keep coming in. Thank you for the kind words. Your support is helping to change lives in Denver.

Dear “Bud” and staff:

Today was a first visit for me and my son. We weren’t looking for anything in particular, just mostly had heard about Bud’s and went on a “scouting mission” to see what they have as I have some home improvement projects coming up.

We were greeted on our way to the entrance.  Greeted again inside the doors and asked if there was anything they could help us find once in the door. We wandered towards the sticks of lumber where a man was sorting out a HUGE pile of it. Immediately as we approached, he said hello and removed his earbud (pet peeve of mine when folks can’t stop listening to their ipod when others are talking to them.)  I asked a couple of questions and he told us that he was just volunteering at the time, and that he could help us find what we needed then, or if we came back later in the day it would he would have it sorted and easier to find what we needed.  When I asked about pricing, he very politely advised us who we could ask and where to find them. He was very friendly and helpful.  (Just our 2 cents worth, but if this guy is looking for paid employment, hire him!  He was friendly without being overfriendly…if that makes sense, and happy to be working.)

We found some great things to use for kids projects! (wood burning is big at my house right now and all those unfinished wood cabinet drawer fronts will be perfect to do wood burning–add some hooks or pegs—and viola!  perfect coat/belt/dog leash rack—could be great wood plaques to make for dad’s birthday or Father’s Day next year.)

There was a set of VERY high end cabinets with beautiful dovetail joints and finish. Take along your imagination and you will find a Huge amount a materials to work with. Use your imagination and there are so many great things!

My only comment to make it a little easier for shoppers is I had a difficult time finding pricing, but perhaps I wasn’t looking far enough.  I did see some big ticket items priced, but not items like the drawer fronts, tile pieces, trim board, etc.  I am always a little shy about finding someone to ask a price about items, so will tend to not ask and not purchase then.

Thank you for the work you do to help save the planet in recycling so many great items and assisting those is in transition. I’m sure the road can be bumpy, but want to say thank you for the work you do!  Live I’ve always heard, “most people don’t want a hand-out, just a hand-up to help them get back on track.”

I have also recommended your  store to several others.
