Top 5 Reasons to Shop Small with Benjamin Moore
You will never find Benjamin Moore paints at big-box retail stores.
- The stores that sell Benjamin Moore products are independently owned, NOT franchises.
- The independent stores that sell Benjamin Moore do not pay fees or royalties to Benjamin Moore.
- Only independently owned stores are authorized to sell Benjamin Moore paint, stain and coatings.
We exclusively sell our products via independent stores because we believe in the power of Main Street.
All of these points add up to local business owners who proactively choose to sell Benjamin Moore products. In turn, they get robust support from Benjamin Moore, receiving world-class knowledge on paint and stain, and bringing that expertise to their neighbourhoods.
Years of experience has shown us why our unique business model makes a difference when it comes to customer service. While there are many more, here are the top five reasons for shopping small for paint and stain:
Many Benjamin Moore retailers have been in the paint business for decades. They help you find the perfect paint colour, finish, and product for your paint or stain project.
This insight upfront translates to a positive impact on the outcome of your project.
Don’t find a salesperson—find your forever contact. You can count on the same Benjamin Moore store for renovations, moves, refinishing projects, paint touchups—everything you need, for years to come. Many of the stores in our network are multi-generational, with paint expertise and insights being handed down over decades.
Team members at an independently owned store help you understand the whats and whys of your buying decisions, guiding you every step of the way.

Weather, home styles, local colour trends, curb appeal: Every neighbourhood is different and unique.
As pillars of their communities, independent store owners and their staff understand the environment you live in—because they are an integral part of it!

Entrepreneurialism is alive and well for independent stores that sell our products. From sponsoring local school sports teams to helping during floods, fires or other community challenges, these local retailers are invested in their neighbourhoods.
When you buy Benjamin Moore paint, you support a local, neighbourhood business. In turn, these businesses support the local community by offering jobs, tax revenue, and local flavour.

A strong network can do wonders.
Your local independent paint store isn’t all about paint. They are folks who are eager to help you find trusted home improvement resources. Knowing they come recommended is the icing on the cake.
