The location of Mazzone's new Benjamin Moore paint store
Mazzone, everyone's favorite neighborhood hardware store at470 Court Street is opening a 'Signature' Benjamin Moore store in the space formerly occupied by Starting Artists at 211 Smith Street. Matt Mazzone told me a few days ago that he hopes that the opening will coincide with the 61st Anniversary of the Court Street store. Paint will continue to be available at the flagship store as well.
According to Benjamin Moore's web site, 'Signature' stores offer a "newly upgraded and personal environment designed to support your color and paint selection."
I have no doubt that this second store will do extremely well. I joked with Matt that he needs to open a dedicated garden center next.
