Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at (902) 543-7121 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.


The fact that Gow's paint department has been #1 in Canada for paint sales amongst Home Hardware stores nationwide for 24 of the past 25 years is your first indication that we take paint seriously.

Many stores sell paint but not every store has invested in building a team of knowledgeable paint experts. Our staff have the experience and training to answer your questions with confidence. From ongoing workshops and seminars to attending what our team affectionately calls "Paint University" we stay up-to-date on industry trends and technologies.

Customers have questions... what is the best product to use for a given project?... what works best?... what doesn't?... what are the newest colour trends?... and so on. Our job is to have answers, and if we don't have them, we get them.

Over the years we have become the South Shore's go-to store for paint and painting supplies. Keith might be quick to say the reason is good looks and charm but quite possibly it also has something to do with offering a great selection of quality products at excellent prices. All supported by a trustworthy and knowledgeable staff.

Drop by and see us and remember that our colour matching computer is a great way match older paint chips or to create your very own personal colour! By the way... if you are wondering how we missed that year of being #1... just ask Keith... something to do with a boom in the oil patch!
