About Us

Established in the late 1970s, Columbus Imports has been a leading supplier of wholesale sea shells and shell products for the best part of 30 years. 

Founded by my dad, Bob Waldron, Columbus was an Australian first and grew from strength to strength as the number one importer in the market. Bob was an entrepreneur and an outstanding merchandiser. He lived and breathed the business 24/7. 

Those of you who worked with Bob will also know that he lost his battle with Multiple Myeloma in August, 2008. With his passing, the business passed to me and it is now my pleasure to continue the work my father loved for so many years.  

In continuing his legacy, Columbus will be all about top quality products, the best prices in town and top-shelf service to you. These are the three core pillars that Bob strived for and delivered on for 30 years. The ever-popular monthly specials on best sellers are also standard once again.

So, if you enjoyed Bob’s signature service, vision and business ethics or if you are new to the business – then welcome aboard! I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Columbus is online and BACK IN BUSINESS!
