EUGENE, Ore. – The GloryBee Factory Store is closing for good in Eugene, company officials announced on Tuesday.

The closure of the store at Highway 99 and Airport Road is effective June 27.

“This decision was not made lightly,” said RaeJean Wilson, daughter of founders Dick and Pat Turanski. “My parents began selling to customers out of their family garage in 1975, and the Factory Store grew and evolved over the years to what it is today.”

The store has been a part of the company for more than 45 years serving local beekeepers and honey lovers.

“As we celebrate this legacy, we also want to celebrate this as a positive change which will allow the company to continue to streamline business operations and focus on paving the way to a profitable future,” Wilson said.

The company’s primary business is with manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, retailers and bakeries, the announcement says. Customers will still be able to purchase products and supplies through e-commerce and from other local retailers.

“GloryBee’s vision is a healthy world where bees and people thrive,” Wilson said.
