What’s in a name?
B&B derived its name from Bill Walkama and Bill Jurisin. The two Bills were longshoremen with a gift for fixing things. They developed a customer base and a reputation for being able to "fix anything" while taking care of customer needs. Butch decided to honor their vision and mission by leaving the name when he purchased the business in 1983. He moved to the current location in 1987. The staff increased to its current size of 10 has remained at that level for most of the last 20 years.
