Bucks member, Pete Monzi of Shamrock Paints, cleverly began his remarks stating that he hoped after listening to the presentation members would not describe it as - watching paint dry!  Members did not.

Pete gave an overview of how long he has been in business and the adaptations he has made to the business over the years. A graduate of Wagner College, Pete bought Shamrock Paints from its previous owner in June of 1985 when he was 26 years old. He bought the business from a client of his father-in-law and the prior owner stayed on for 2 months to show Pete the ropes. With no experience in the painting industry, the assistance was most welcome. Pete built his mom and pop business to be one of not only selling paint to his neighbors and local contractors, but a business that provides all the products and services to be a full decorating center offering wall and floor products, for example. The staff at the stores (one is located on Victory Boulevard and one on Richmond Avenue) include an interior decorator and a color consultant.

As someone who has been at the counter of the store for decades, Pete enjoys seeing the generation of customers who enter the stores and interacting with the children of those who were his first customers when he opened.

Taking great pride in the quality of paint he sells, Pete is also proud of the knowledge and years of experience he has accumulated to guide homeowners on important decorating decisions such as: how to pick the right color, what type of paint works for a type of room, and home decorating tips.
