    When checking my most recent email from you today, and selecting the page for viewing the traffic pattern for the upcoming Merrie Monarch, below it is a section titled “Related Articles”. There is an April Paint Specials; however, when I view it the dates are for 2012. We are expecting to paint our home shortly, and I am wondering if this April Paint special is for 2013? Thanks. Frieda

      Hi Frieda –
      Thanks for your comment. Sorry, those paint specials are for last year. We don’t have any specific paint specials in April 2013. However for a full home paint job we do have some volume purchase incentives you could benefit from. Come in and talk to our paint specialists and they’ll hook you up with great quality paint from Ben Moore or Pratt and lambert at a very reasonable price.
