    I placed an order for a second top bar hive through Bee Thinking in Portland on April 5, 2017 and it has not been delivered. I have left numerous email and phone messages on voce mail. On June 12 I received an email that my message had been received and “is being reviewed by support staff”, but today the phone calls do not go through. Yelp states that “location may have closed”. Has anyone heard about Bee Thinking or its owner Matt —. He came to the HoneyLove Symposium last year.

    Yes, unfortunately it has closed recently. Matt’s a good guy and I’m sure they will take care of you.

    Oh no! That’s a bummer. I hope you get your money back. 🙁

    Ceebs , Do you think I will ever receive my order? It is infinitely more useful to have 2 hives with the same size/type of frames. I have not cancelled my credit card payment yet.


    I saw a facebook thread where Matt explained the closing of the business, and said the best way to receive a refund is to dispute the charge with the credit card company. However, the Bee Thinking website redirects to a new website called Bee Built and it says they are launching in September of this year. I would recommend disputing the charges like Matt suggests and if you are so inclined, try ordering again sometime after the new site launches.

    I think everything got worked out for you, but if it didn’t for you or anyone else, you can always reach out at, or call 877-255-3233 and someone will be glad to assist! Ed, the owner, has gone to great lengths to make sure anyone who didn’t get their product from the old company is made right if at all possible.

    Otherwise Bee Built is selling significantly higher quality beekeeping equipment than Bee Thinking could ever produce, with guaranteed shipment within 2 business days. If you can order, it’s in stock!
