Longtime local business under new ownership
By Jillian Chandler
“We give thanks to Harold and Liz Stephenson for all their years of dedicated hard work. They have built The Paint Bucket into a household name for Sandpoint.”
January 2020 not only marked a new year but an exciting new endeavor for one North Idaho couple, as Jeremie and Briel Prock took over ownership of The Paint Bucket, which has been serving the Sandpoint community for the past 33 years.
Along with new ownership comes a new name—Prock’s Paint Bucket. Longtime customers of The Paint Bucket can still expect the same great services at this retail paint and sundries store. “We are a family owned and operated store serving the local community,” says Jeremie. “We strive for superior customer service paired with a fun and friendly environment.”
The couple has lived in the Pacific Northwest for many years and find Sandpoint to be a very beautiful and unique place. “The first thing we noticed about Sandpoint before we ever bought the business, and one of the main deciding factors in our purchase, was the friendliness of the people who live here and the quality of life,” says Briel. “The people here treat you like family and are open and inviting. Feels like we have lived here all our life.”
Jeremie and Briel are seasoned in the paint business, as they have been the proud owners of Prock’s Paint Bucket in Hayden (located at 8943 North Commerce Drive), which has been serving loyal customers since 2019. With a background as a painting and remodeling contractor for many years, Jeremie enjoys being able to interact with people and loves to serve.
“We are in the business of aiming for perfection and doing the job right,” affirms Jeremie. “We make sure you find everything you need for your painting project right here in Sandpoint.”
