History

Vintage J.C. Licht StoreSince 1907 we’ve been bringing your inspiration to life in your home, thanks to our Benjamin Moore paint and interior design products & services. When in 1907 Jacob Christian Licht opened his first paint store in Chicago at 3150 West Twelfth Street, he simply thought of himself as a business person ready to give his first customers what they wanted: “top quality painting products and superb service. Since its inception, the business started by Jacob Licht has flourished and grown to a group of over 30 stores in the Chicagoland area.

Why JC Licht

  • We have been customers at the JC Licht store in Morton Grove for years.We love the personal service you get there, unlike anything you receive in the big box home improvement stores. The personal attention to details has been so important to us over the last 15 years as we have improved our home. From paints, to stains, on woodwork, walls, and outside materials. We know we can always trust the advice of someone at the store. They have never steered us wrong. Especially love the selection of the higher quality products.

    But, most of all we have never regretted the decision to spend over $2000.00 on the Hunter Douglas window treatments that we purchased thru Margie at the Morton Grove store. She went thru everything with us between all the materials available, type of blinds and hardware. We cannot be happier with our selection. Even when we had a few little issues w/ the hardware after installation she had them returned to HD and back to us quickly.

    Also when our dog decided he wanted to see out the window and tried to pull the shade and broke it, Margie was able to have a repair man from a private company come to our house to fix the blind.

    I have always recommended her to family and friends when they need any interior design done with wall paper, paint color choices and window treatments. Definitely we are very happy and satisfied customers.
