Hi,

Wondering who sells Butcher’s Bowling Alley Wax and Renaissance Wax -
in Canada? Preferably in B.C. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Nancy

you can get fine waxes from Lee Valley tools who have an outlet in
Ottawa (sorry not BC) www.leevalley.com A lot of the things they sell
are made in Canada.

for waxes :

Conservators wax (UK?)is similar to Renaissance wax (UK) and many of
the better paste waxes will be similar to Butchers.

Try calling upon the local bowling groups at your bowling alley. If
not, try Lacy West in Vancouver 800-669-5229, or 800-667-4118 his
name is Les Durkin…

Yes they do! Two, in fact. I didn’t know about the Coquitlam
location. Here’s the store locator page

Thanks to everyone who responded to my ? Re: Renaissance Wax and
Butcher’s Bowling Alley Wax. I checked Lee Valley’s website and will
buy their Conservator’s wax. I phoned our local bowling alley before
making my post - the owner/manager didn’t know what I was talking
about - that confused me. Will try another one.

Thanks again, Nancy

Hi Nancy - if you google Butcher’s Bowling Alley Wax you’ll find
several listings, among them one from SC Johnson Wax that states
Johnson Wax bought the Butcher’s company. They offer Diamond
Butcher’s
Bowling Alley Wax which is clear, the other, I think, must be the
standard yellow wax. But it’s available through a number of outlets.

You might try your computer. I Googled, “Butcher’s Bowling Alley
Wax” and at the top of the list was the Butcher Wax Company web site
for, “Butcher’s Bowling Alley Wax”.

To quote their site,

 Butcher's Wax has been an American favorite since 1880. Great
 on Floors, Sculptures, Concrete Countertops, Painted Surfaces,
 Metal, Cooper and many other surfaces that need protection
 without discoloration. 16 oz. can. Usually ships within 1-2
 days - $11.99
