“When you run a business, you end up getting involved in many tasks. I like the fact that the interactions that happen in my store rest on my shoulders. Benjamin Moore provides great products that have impact. Most people don’t just walk into a paint store and utter the word ‘wow.’ We have a unique partnership going and are proud to be part of our local community. We are the people’s paint store.” – Craig Bond, Tommys Paint Pot, Eugene, OR
“It’s rewarding to own a business, and a constant learning process. Paint technology is evolving and Benjamin Moore is leading that change. We’re excited to sell these high-performing and eco-friendly products. In a marketplace with an increasing number of big-box stores, running a small business is a strength. You get to know your products in and out, and your knowledge and expertise help customers develop 100% faith in you. That’s a true mark of success.” – Colleen Curry, Painters Express Inc., Middletown NJ
“I have been running my own business for 25 years. I started with one store in Woodhaven, NY, and now own four Benjamin Moore stores. I’m very proud to be a Benjamin Moore dealer and to have them as a partner. The brand lives up to its name. Years later, I am still selling premium paint that produces sophisticated looks every single time. That is why my customers keep coming back. I put my heart into my business to serve the community. You work very hard, but it’s the best kind of work.” – Jean Park, Colorall Paints & Blinds, Fort Lee, NJ
