    Dutch and Wally’s became Bob Johnson (Senior) Paint Store; when he retired, his son Bob, Jr., and daughter-in-law Susan took over and soon added following to their store. They wound up moving to where the grower’s supply place now is and Susan started up the interior design side of things — turned into Shady Lady which is now in downtown Eureka.

    Sorry — typo: Bob and Sue added FLOORING to the paint store.
    They relocated to 639 6th St., Arcata & from there to 405 Henderson St.
