Ever since I found The Paint Depot store in Charlotte, I’ve loved it!!!! A locally owned store that carries Benjamin Moore paint (and painting supplies), The Paint Depot staff are what really make this place special.
Not pushy or salesy but there to help when you have questions. They’ll let you browse and will offer as much or as little guidance as you’d like on your project.
The store’s owner happened to be helping me as I was buying ceiling paint and he told me to get a smaller can than the one I’d chosen, that I wouldn’t need the larger one for a bathroom. And he was right. Saved me from spending another $20 or so that I didn’t need to.
They know their product and it’s clear that they really are paint specialists, but they also get that color is a really personal and subjective decision. They offer guidance and expertise while still allowing the customer to make the decision.
It’s been three years since I found this place, and I now call it “my” paint store because I won’t buy paint anywhere else. Benjamin Moore paint isn’t cheap but after years of aggravation with the “big box store” stuff, the quality is really far superior.
I’ve used their “Aura” paint and it covered dark blues in just 2 coats with no primer. I was impressed, and the finish of the paint is awesome. My house is over 40 years old – the walls are oh so far from perfect but this paint really does give a smooth and very clean finish.
Paint colors are just one of those things that the online version just can’t replicate, so if you’re in the south Charlotte NC area and considering painting anytime soon go over and stop by the Paint Depot store.
They’re located just north of Pineville in the Tower Place shopping center – 8706 Pineville-Matthews Rd, Suite 120 Charlotte 28226
Store hours are: 7:30am-5pm Mon-Fri, 9am-2pm Sat
You can also find them on Facebook – Benjamin Moore Paint Depot Charlotte’s Facebook Page
Charlotte’s Paint Depot store does have a Benjamin Moore website at Paint Depot Store Online in case you prefer to browse online before visiting the store.
They have the wall behind the counter decorated with quotes, and this is one of my favorites: “Have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it” ~ Salvador Dali.
