The branch will trade under ‘The Paint Centre by N&C’ and offers painting and decorating solutions for both trade professionals and DIY customers.

To cater to DIY customers, the Paint Centre promises to have an “expert colour and design team” on hand to offer customers advice and tips on colour trends, paints types and applications.  

The company promises a huge stock of painting and decorating essentials in the store, sold at competitive and services include 30 days free credit on a trade account, delivery throughout the South East colour mixing and matching, plus free sample pots when customers return the empty pot and purchase the full size of the same product.

Situated just off the North Circular Road (A406), The Paint Centre by N&C "is well positioned for trade collect and the local DIY customer”, says the company.
