Take the guesswork out of choosing the right colors

My husband and I have been customers of Wheaton’s JC Licht store for the last 20 years. We’ve come to count on the people there for their expertise and knowledge. There are so many wonderful staff that have guided us on so many home projects—thanks for hiring great/caring/knowledgeable people!

Recently, over the last few days, I had the pleasure of working with John and Jane. I was at the store multiple times on multiple days. I was trying to arrive at the perfect Arborcoat stain for our deck, thus buying several pints. AT ALL TIMES John and Jane greeted me with huge smiles and asked how they could help me. They engaged me in depth. John keenly listened and came up with a solution that led to the perfect color for our deck! I bought 6 gallons and wanted to write to you about my experience,

It didn’t matter if the store was busy, the hour was late or that I’d been there 1, 2 or 5 times—John and Jane treated me like gold. They are extremely hard working, nice people and I wanted you to know what GREAT representatives they are for JC Licht. I hope you will recognize them (and quite frankly the Wheaton store) for their outstanding customer service.  It was once again, a pleasure doing business at ‘my’ JC Licht store!
