S-Bar-S is in the business of building dreams.
And the retail building materials store helps people build and maintain their dreams on their own.
So whether you are interested in DIY or completely done-for-you, S-Bar-S is the place for all your building needs.
Since 1971, S-Bar-S has been locally owned by the same family. We don’t answer to a franchise, we answer to you. Our reputation is on the line with every building that we build and with every 2×4 that we sell. Our answer to that is by doing business in a straight-forward, “no bull crap” manner.
We aren’t just proud of the buildings that we build, S-Bar-S is proud to be a part of the community by employing numerous people throughout the years and by supporting the community through Little League sponsorship, Boy Scout fundraising with our annual Christmas tree sales, and helping small businesses reach customers by holding craft fairs. All of these are more dreams and aspirations that we have had the pleasure of being involved in.
S-Bar-S has had the honor of serving the Billings community for over 45 years, and looks forward to the years ahead with the next generation at the helm.
