Default Painting in Portland

I'll start with a bit of slightly frustrating humor. I cant tell you the name of my business. One of the words is not allowed on the forum. Back in 1944 a man by the name of Richard started a paint business in Milwaukie, Oregon barring his name in the shortened form. 30 some odd years ago, he sold the company to an employee, who has owned it ever since. The name, which was very well known has been retained, so today we are still D1cks Color Center (this might work. YES!). Now we have 2 locations, all run by family, one on the West and one on the East side of Portland. We are an independent retailer carrying Benjamin Moore and Pratt and Lambert. The east side store also carries Miller and Devine paint, which are both regional to the NW. Here are our locations and contacts:

15340 SE McLoughlin Blvd - Milwaukie
Phone: 503-654-1600

6559 SW Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy - Portland
Phone: 503-473-8444




Anyway, I hope to be able to gather some knowledge from all of you. We try to carry products that work and that painters like, and there's clearly no better source than the painters themselves. And I am always looking to hear about individual techniques or methods so that I can help others out. Seeing that I work with paint products everyday, I hope to also be able to provide some level of advice or product recommendations to help you as well.

Welcome to the forum! We have a few other paint store owners here too, always interesting to hear from the "other side of the counter"!
I know we have several members in the Portland area, they may already be your customers!

Never argue with a fool - they will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.
