Tomorrow they will be open at their new location in the Walgreens Plaza next to Nadeaus Subs. I stopped in last week when I saw them working in the new space. I spoke with the manager and told her that for me this was going to be great. I felt the location they had for many years near the Lindt Resale shop was really out of play. It was strong with painting pros but consumer traffic, not so much. It was sort of tough to visit the store.
The Globe Plaza location was in my estimation also out of play, despite being in a strip street visibility is poor. I know for me I like to duck over to the “paint store” to get something mid project. This new location which closer in by two traffic lights will be a winner. Also the Globe Plaza parking has some issues. I understand the exercise place is busting at the seams, and can’t get additional space at that location. The Market , the Exercise place and a Dollar store. Two strong duck in businesses, and one strong longer term parking business. Something has to give.
Guess what ? This “new ” location for Exeter Paint next to Walgreens was the home of Exeter Paint for almost 17 years back in the day.
So get in and check out the new store. I will be in early Monday as I need their detective work on a qt can missing it’s label.
