The East End of Long Beach just got more color.

Benjamin Moore paints and swatches line the walls of Aboff’s Paints, a new shop that opened at 367 E. Park Ave. on Thursday.

“I’m looking forward to being part of the community,” said Ryan Doyle, manager of the family own store that has 28 locations across Nassau and Suffolk counties. The first store opened in Huntington in the 1920s.

Doyle said that Aboff’s decided to open a store in Long Beach because residents from the beach town provided a good customer base at their stores along the South Shore, including Oceanside, Baldwin and Valley Stream.

“We are always looking to expand and Long Beach is a good community,” Doyle said.

The new store is the only Aboff’s to sport hardwood floors and exposed brick walls. It was converted from two former storefronts, Le Look II, a women’s salon, and Hertz & Rosenzweig, a former CPA office at 369 E. Park, where after it closed a cycling health studio was proposed to occupy the vacancy but didn’t materialize.

Do we not want to note that Aboff's is also a hardware store? or is it not? Hope so, since we lost the O'Rourke family stores.

No hardware, just Moore paint. O'Rourke is another Democrats' tax increase casualty.
