About Us



Hate to tell you this, but there is no Bud. Well, not any one person.

BUD’S stands for Building Unity and Dignity through Service


It all started with Bud's Warehouse in 1996 , the first non-profit business mission of Belay Enterprises to employ those with alternative resumes who seemed unemployable because they were recovering from addiction, prison or homelessness. 

Bud's is a retail store of new and previously used home improvement supplies – all donated by area contractors, builders, suppliers, and homeowners at savings of up to 70% off retail.   The money earned RECYCLES building materials that would usually get trashed.   The materials get RE-USED by others in their homes recreating spaces more affordably.  Bud's REBUILDS lives through job creation and skill development.  

Through hard work, job training and a life-skills program, Bud's has transformed not only building materials but the lives of many individuals that have grown into better paying jobs, a college education and careers. 


Bud’s is open six days a week… Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. 

Some people ask if we are still off I-70?  We say..."Where have you been?"  We moved in 2015 to Aurora!  Come see us!   We now reside at 13280 E. Mississippi Ave., Aurora, CO 80012 (just west of I-225 off Mississippi and Potomac)

Bud’s is a great place to shop if you are looking to remodel your home.  Every day there are new “finds” at Bud’s.  Our trucks pick up items everyday and we upload them to the online store that afternoon.   You can find windows, doors, appliances, carpet, granite, paint, lighting, cabinets, flooring, and so much more. If you can’t find it today, it may come in tomorrow.
