A quick Edit since I originally posted this article, I have talked to a lot of customers about what had happen to JB Saunders. Most of the customers had said that they had not been to Saunders in a while or even several months and were a bit surprised that they had been struggling. In all due honesty, NO business could survive if their customers were only coming in every few months to make purchases.


We are the last one left

Around 3:30 p.m. on Monday, an off-duty Boulder County sheriff’s deputy was just finishing his post overseeing the eviction of JB Saunders Company from its 4,000-square-foot storefront on Sterling Circle in Boulder.

By 3:45, the scrappers were there, digging through three large construction dumpsters that had been filled with thousands of dollars worth of metal, computer parts and electronics.

Nothing much good was left by 3 p.m. on Tuesday, when Brighton-based Kelly’s Rolloff Services hauled the containers away to the Boulder County Recycling Center, but a worker for the landlord had to chase a handful of people away from the last dumpster, still searching for gold.

The longtime electronic parts supply company was forcibly removed for failure to pay more than $13,730 in back rent to property owner Neico Investments LLC. Payments stopped in September, according to court filings, and a judgement against JB Saunders was handed down January 27.

JB Saunders’ owner, Tammy Schreiner-Johnson, did not respond to a request for comment.

JB Saunders had been in business in Boulder since 1976, drawing a small but devoted following of do-it-yourselfers. Several people drove, walked and biked to the shop Monday and Tuesday, looking for odd little parts that only JB Saunders carried and instead finding the doors closed and about half the store’s interior sitting outside on the curb.
