JOHNSON PAINT CELEBRATES 50 YEARS OF SELLING MARTIN-SENOUR PAINTS

JOHNSON PAINT CELEBRATES 50 YEARS OF SELLING MARTIN-SENOUR PAINTS
 BOSTON, June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Boston's largest paint store is also one of its oldest. Johnson Paint Company is celebrating 50 years of providing local homeowners and professional contractors with quality Martin-Senour products.
 Martin-Senour products have been popular with consumers since the store's opening in 1942, said Bob Johnson, vice president. "Back then Martin-Senour only sold standard colors," he said. "Painters were on hand to tint all colors. Today the trend is to produce pre-mixed colors, While the products have changed, the Martin-Senour quality still remains."
 Located at 355 Newbury St., the family-owned store features an array of paint, stains and related sundries, speciality items and dry pigments. In addition to a complete line of products, Johnson Paint regularly offers consumers "how-to" classes on topics ranging from glazing to faux painting. According to Johnson, much of the store's success is attributed to the way it takes care of its customers. In fact, the store does not advertise, but achieves a strong customer base via word of mouth.
 "We pride ourselves on good delivery and service," he said. "For instance, we are one of the few stores that still carries powdered paints used on ceilings in the 1920s and '30s. Today many individuals involved in restoration projects contact us for this difficult-to-find product."
 Another special service the store provides is custom color matching, said Johnson. "We have a full-time color matcher who can match anything customers bring in. It's all done visually by eye."
 Johnson Paint features a variety of Martin-Senour paints, including Bright Life, Pro Line Premium, Colonial Williamsburg colors and varnishes. Johnson believes Martin-Senour gives customers the top quality they seek. "Martin-Senour is the 'cadillac' of paint lines," he noted. "The brand's strength is definitely the availability of its clean, clear interior colors."
 Johnson Paint company has 19 employees and is open 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday; and 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. The store's phone number is 617-536-4244.
