Historic Paint Store Shines in Storied Boston Neighborhood
Situated on Newbury Street in the heart of Boston, Johnson Paint has been a staple in the neighborhood since 1939. The operation has 10 other locations in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine. In early 2023, Johnson Paint was acquired by Ring’s End, a lumber and building materials retailer based in Darien, Connecticut, which is another third-generation family-owned and operated business like Johnson Paint.
