Remember Real Paint Stores?
REAL PAINT STORES were once found in every community in America, but since 1960, three out of four independent paint retailers have permanently closed their doors – unable to compete with big boxes and company stores in a paint market focused on price rather than quality.
IN A PERFECT WORLD every American homeowner and painting contractor would have access to a real paint store – not just a paint department in a big box or a company-owned store selling one brand of merchandise - staffed by inadequately trained personnel.
THE FAMILY OWNED ESTABLISHMENTS which once sold better paint brands and dispensed product knowledge and color guidance have disappeared from most American communities, leaving millions of discerning homeowners and professional painters with no source of quality coatings or guidance. This shift in sales venue is part of the reason for the continued downward spiral in domestic paint quality – a result of America’s four-year average residency compared to twenty-plus years in Europe.
