After all these years of painting and still loving to restore homes, everytime I think of paint I think of TRUE VALUE!!! I've had such good luck with their product line of paint. It covers so well, they have great colors, and if you know me, you know how much I love my colors!!!!! I also appreciate the staff at Wentzel's to mix and match my paint when needed and keep forever records of which paint I use in which house and individual room. Thanks Wentzel's True Value, you make painting such a joy!!!! Marie Fitzgerald
