About The Bee Store
The Bee Store was created out of a necessity for local beekeepers to be able to come to one spot and see the supplies before they buy. As with anything great, it has become so much more than just a beekeeping supply store.
We have grown and with that, so has our mission. Not only do we provide quality beekeeping supplies, but we also are continuing beekeeping education. From our classes where we cover the introduction to beekeeping for those just thinking if it is the right decision for them to the in-depth parts of setting up a hive and prepping for anything that can happen to it. We are striving to grow the best beekeepers to create a thriving honey bee population for generations to come. We want to be your resource when it comes to anything dealing with bees.
We’re quickly growing to be the favorite bee supply store in Northern Virginia. But don’t take our word for it – here’s what our customers have to say.
"I visited this hidden treasure for the first time today and was very impressed with the customer service and selection of unique, bee-inspired gifts. Lynn was an absolute pleasure to meet and her genuine nature and incredible knowledge of all-things-bees made the shopping experience all the more fun! Thank you for making my day and helping me choose a special gift for my mom! I know she will love it and personally be by to visit in the near- future! Wishing you all much continued success."
"The wife and I went to one of the bee keeping classes given by John and it was awesome! It was so much more than we expected. He walked us through setting up a hive, what tools you really need and how to spot trouble brewing. All with personal examples - and lots of photos. There was a genuineness that brought it all home for us. This just became my new - favorite store."
"Stopped by today. The store has a great layout and the wife enjoyed the gift ideas, crafts, jewelry, etc. I also thought the prices on everything were extremely reasonable and fair. The owner John is friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. The store is also veteran owned. The store is tucked away in a shopping center but the GPS had no problem finding it and it is right off of 95. We will certainly be back!"
