We’re here for all of your color refreshing needs! From exterior makeovers, interior updates, a kitchen remodel or a new nursery, we are experts in all projects and can make your dream a reality.

The next time you need to paint you could head to the hardware store and have them try to mix the color of paint you want; or you could head to a more specialized paint store. At Abbott Paint & Carpet, every customer representative you talk to is going to have extensive knowledge of paint and how to choose the right color to meet your needs and desires.

What really sets us apart is our service. Most of our paint specialists have been with us for 15-20 yrs. An amazing thing you will find at Abbott Paint is the fact that we still match the majority of paints by hand because computers have limited parameters and cannot achieve what we do by eye with our years of experience. Plus, we may be the only retailer that still does custom stain matches.

Some people think all paint is the same – this couldn’t be further from the truth. We’ve taken the guesswork out of the process for you. We only carry high-quality, premium paints that cover beautifully every time… and we have various paints to fit different budgets. Come in with your project, and we’ll find you a perfect product at your desired price point!

If you lived in the Mac-Groveland/Merriam Park areas of St. Paul any time in the past seven decades you probably met, or at least knew, Howard “Mike” Abbott. Mike opened the first Abbott Paint store in 1945 with the personal attention small retailers had back then for their customers. That detail, with his insistence of top-quality products, brought homeowners and painting contractors back again and again over the years. Eventually, locations in White Bear Lake and Stillwater were added as word about their customer care, and painting know-how spread.

Mike passed away a few years ago. His four sons that operate the three locations wanted to recognize their father’s legacy with something dear to him, and quickly decided it would be paint. After months of researching the quality and attributes deserving of such recognition, the brothers came up with a private label 100% acrylic exterior paint and named it Vintage 24, for the year Mike was born.
