Strothkamp's Paint Center was started in 1956 by Bob and Harry Strothkamp - two brothers that literally grew up in the paint business. Bob and Harry's father was a union painting contractor by trade and his boys learned the paint business by working with him. The original store was in Manchester, MO and started in a house where Bob and Harry grew up - next door to the house their mother was born - built in 1847. They built a new store in 1972 to hold their expanding business and expanded further in the 80s. They recently moved their business to Ballwin.

“Strothkamps is a wonderful place in this crazy busy world of ours. We have used them for almost all of our painting needs over the past 50+ years. Sure when the big box stores came to play someone in the family tried them out for paint. That didn't happen again. We love the help with picking colors. Friendly, knowledgeable, helped with finding good painters through the years. It's our one stop shop for all our painting needs.” - Mary Krienke

“I originally went here because of the online reviews of the paint. I bought there a second time because I liked patronizing a small business. I continue to go there because of the great service and people that work there. Am I paying more then if I went to Lowes? Yes, probably. Are their hours (close at 5:30) annoying? Yes. At the end of the day do I feel like I have used a superior product, gotten in and out of the store quickly and had superior service... yes. Summary: The product is better. Patronizing a small business and getting great service is just icing on the cake..” - Google user
