A very familiar store to those of us who are over 70 years of age. The Hooper paint store at 8 South Warren Street served the community for nearly 100 years. I remember numerous trips to E.F. Hooper with Fred Kuser as he stocked up on paint for his Hamilton home. Mr. Hooper passed away in 1966. The store was taken over by the M.A. Bruder paint company ("MAB").
