Dog Ears Bookstore & Café shows off new colors

If you’ve driven down Abbott Road recently, you may have noticed that something looks different. And in this case, that’s a very good thing!

Thanks to the generosity of CEO Bill Paladino, Cathy Paladino and Ellicott Development Company, and Kevin Burke of Sherwin-Williams, Dog Ears was the recent recipient of a much-needed paint job and building repairs.

The Paladinos sent a crew to paint and complete necessary building repairs, while Sherwin-Williams donated half of the paint for the job and provided the remainder of the paint at half price.

“I would like to personally thank the Paladinos, Ellicott Development, Kevin Burke and Sherwin-Williams for their extreme generosity and community spirit,” said Thomas McDonnell, director of the nonprofit bookstore. “I really hope that people understand how much Cathy Paladino does for our community because you would be amazed! And, her generous ways can also be seen in her son Bill through his commitment to many charities and organizations around Western New York.

“Kevin Burke at Sherwin-Williams was also in on this beautification project from the beginning,” McDonnell continued, “and worked with us on his own time to make sure everything went well. I just can’t say enough about everyone involved in this project.”

Dog Ears Bookstore & Café is located at 688 Abbott Road in South Buffalo. For more information, please call 823-2665.
