THIS JUST RELEASED: Belmont, has hastened its pace to become the leader in paint stores on the Peninsula.  When asked what initiated this race for dominance, a senior spokesperson from Belmont said, “Let’s face it, if we can’t compete with San Carlos’ or San Mateo’s dining and entertainment options, we can certainly go after their paint stores. By forcing the unpropitious Holiday Liquor store to close, we’re now just two paint stores shy of besting San Carlos.”

While San Carlos may be known for their wide array of dining options and a vibrant downtown, Belmont continues its goal to reign supreme when it comes to paint stores.  “This is great news for the citizens of Belmont, he continued, after all what’s more exciting than paint? Isn’t there even a saying about how fun it is to watch paint dry?”

Yet there’s a real and present threat to the livelihood for stores such as Starbucks and Pete’s Coffee in Belmont. Sherman Williams for example is serving FREE coffee in their establishment, becoming a one-stop-shop for entertainment and refreshments.

The citizens of Belmont are overwhelmingly in favor of more paint stores, with comments like, “Look how colorful their store front is now” and “Who needs more social dining and gathering places when you have some many chic new palates to talk about?”

The much anticipated Water Dog Tavern scheduled to open in September in the Carlmont Shopping Center couldn’t have picked a worse time to go head-to head with more deep-pocket paint stores.

When asked for further comment, a senior spokesperson in Belmont continued “If we can’t “Paint the Town Red”, like our neighboring cities with watering holes and fine dining, by golly we’ll paint it just the same.”
