If you are a parent, you know bringing your children along while running errands can become a little stressful for you and your children. At the Cortland, New York, location of Meldrim’s Paint, children in tow with their parents running paint errands can have their own fun while their parents shop. The store has set up a coloring table with coloring books and crayons for children to enjoy.
Director of operations Kaitlyn Head says picking out a paint color and getting all the necessary products for a project can be time consuming. Parents appreciate having the activities available to keep their children entertained while they shop the store.
“Having the activities available for the kids takes a little bit of pressure off the parents, giving them the extra time they need,” Head says.
