Meet The Interior Design Expert
While traveling for a paint company out of Denver, CO, Richard R. Myers began thinking he’d like to have his own business. So, when the opportunity for a Benjamin Moore paint dealership in the Yakima area became available, he took it. In 1954 he and his family moved to Yakima and opened Standard Paint along with 2 other partners.
Dick quickly built a reputation for offering exceptional personal service, a knowledgeable staff and a selection of quality products. After obtaining sole ownership in 1974, and to accommodate a growing business, Dick built a new facility on 3rd Ave., where our main branch is still located today. Further expansion came in 1980 with the addition of floor covering and decorating products, and the opening of our Design Studio in 1988. In total, we now consist of 6 stores throughout central Washington and Oregon.
In 1986 Dick Sr. retired, and his son, Dick Jr., took over. Under Junior’s leadership Standard Paint & Decorating, (at the time) grew into the Tri-Cities and Bend, OR communities. The flooring and decorating side of the business grew to become just as strong as the paint business, and Standard Paint’s brand and reputation continued build trust and loyalty with their communities.
In 2006 Dick Jr.’s sons Regan and Craig Myers joined the Standard Paint & Flooring team to become the third generation of Myers, and are currently partners with their Dad. Recently Standard Paint & Flooring has expanded their product offerings and services to include cabinets and stucco as well. Standard Paint has also increased the benefits they are able to offer their customers by becoming a Hunter Douglas Gallery Dealer and a Shaw Gallery Dealer.
Just recently in 2012 Standard Paint & Flooring opened up their sixth store in Wenatchee, WA and are very proud to become a part of that community and employee some very talented professionals.
Today Dick, Regan, Craig and the entire Standard Paint & Flooring family continue to rely on the same standard of offering quality products and personal service, making Standard Paint & Flooring a place Where service is still in Style.
