River City Paint opens new showroom

WICHITA — Earlier this year, River City Paint moved from a 110-square-foot office downtown to a 2,700-square-foot building on the southeast corner of Maple and Meridian.

Now, the company's new showroom is ready.

"It's kind of a new concept," says owner Tony Lynch. He says the idea is to showcase "things that customers . . . don't traditionally see from a paint contracting company."

Since it opened in 2005, the business has done a lot of different work, including exterior and interior painting, faux painting and murals.

"We kind of have a little bit of everything here," says artist Tracey Weaver.

But River City never had a way to conveniently show customers its work before now.

The new showroom has a 16-foot mural near its entrance and offers before-and-after pictures of its work along with samples of its floor finishes.

Customers can visit the showroom now, and there's a grand opening Nov. 6.
