Port Credit was an obvious choice of location for owner Mark Smith to open his store because of his connection to the village community. Mark has worked in a variety of retail positions not just paint. He has deep roots within the community and is excited to grow his business in the neighbourhood he has called his home! Lakeside Paints is a proud supporter of community events, including Paint the Town Red and Port Credit’s annual Canada Day festival.

Their Story

Mark sought to open a business that would service the neighbourhood and he recognized the need for a paint supply shop in Port Credit. It was a natural choice for Mark because he has been involved in the paint business since he was only 16 years old. Mark’s father, David Smith, was a great influence on his son and his decision to pursue a career in the paint business. His Mother, Deborah Smith and David worked in the paint supply business for over 40 years gaining business experience! It was this experience as well as his mother’s diploma in interior design in which has guided Mark through opening and operation of his business.

In fact, the dream to open a family paint shop started with David; it was his aspiration to build a successful paint business in the Port Credit community. Mark was fully on board with his father’s vision and wanted to be an equal partner in the business. Both men were excited to see their dream come to fruition.

Heartbreakingly, David passed away just a month before the opening of their store. Despite Mark’s heavy heart and grief over his father’s passing, he vowed to carry on the family business and make his father proud!
