Add Sherwin-Williams to the list of retailers celebrating store expansion milestones this year.
Dollar General opened its 10,000th location earlier in the year, followed by the 5,000th AutoZone store and more recently Walgreens opened its 8,000th store. Now, Sherwin-Williams has opened its 3,500 stores in Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif. The 4,000-sq.-ft. store is the 70th retail location the company has opened this year and its 147th location in California.
"By expanding our retail footprint, we are able to offer our exceptional products and service to even more customers," said Jay Davisson, president and general manger of the Sherwin-Williams Paint Stores Group. "We provide a high level of personalized service with expert advice from salespeople who understand everything from the color selection process to choosing the right product for the job."
News of the company’s expanding retail footprint follows an announcement last month of a $2.34 billion deal to acquire Consorcio Comex, a leading Mexican supplier of paint and coatings. Comex manufactures and sells architectural and industrial coatings in Mexico through 3,300 points of sale operated by 750 concessionaires. The company also operates 240 stores in the U.S. and in Canada operates 78 stores and services 1,500 paint dealers.
