B Independent - our products help!

The B Independent store is now closed

After 17 years online, the two families who started B Independent are retiring.  No new orders will be accepted, although we'll still be here through the end of the month to handle issues with existing orders.

Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has shared in our incredible online adventure.  Thank you for shopping with us, challenging and inspiring us over the last 17 years.  You're the best -- stay strong and b independent!

And now, some important assurances.

We provide first rate service

All companies talk a good game when it comes to customer service.  But do they deliver?  Only their customers know.  

Would you like to "meet" over 2200 of B Independent's customers and get their opinion of our service?  It's easily done!  Just take a look at our customer comments on ebay.  We do indeed deliver.

We would love to get your take on how we are doing.  What pleases you?  What doesn't?  Where do we excel?  Where do we fall short?  How can we improve?  Please clue us in - leave feedback.
