About Us

We are an award-winning regional chain of paint, wallpaper, and window coverings stores located in the southwestern communities of Exeter, St.Marys, Stratford and Clinton.

Founded by Chris and Kelly Collison in 2001, Partners Paint & Paper began with a small store located on the main street in the south end of Exeter. By 2006, having outgrown that location, the store was moved to its present location at the intersection of highways 4 and 83. In 2009, Partners was at it again, adding another 2 stores; one in historic St. Marys, and the other in Clinton, the Heart of Huron County. In 2015, we opened our largest store yet, in Stratford. Our mix of quality products and innovative, personalized services has fueled our expansion and we remain focused on continued growth.
