About Us

Family owned and operated by President Brad Makarenko, Fargeys Decorating Centre has locations in Red Deer and Lacombe. We actively participate in our communities and genuinely create relationships within them. This is Brad’s motto and has been the success of Fargeys to date.

Customer Service

We have won GOLD the Red Deer Express Readers’ Choice “Best Paint Store” for twenty consecutive years. How? At Fargeys, we have built our 54+ year business on customer relationships, knowledge, quality and passion. We know your name, sometimes we know your dog’s name, we remember that you painted your bathroom in “Hot Lips”, and what your husband thought of that. We carried your paint out for you and had a ten minute conversation in the parking lot. Fargeys builds lifetime relationships within their communities and we do our very best, with passion, every day.

We educate ourselves on Benjamin Moore interior and exterior coatings, sundries, colour and find unique art and decor to provide you with quality information, instruction and inspiration for the best outcome possible. Our staff has used the products we are recommending or will find someone who has. Sometimes we don’t know the answer but are willing to ask and learn the answer with you rather than leave you to research on your own and get some less than satisfactory information from some less than reliable sources.

We care about your project and your success. We care about your experience with us, in fact we care so much that we get just as involved as if we were doing it ourselves! Even if we don’t have exactly what you may be looking for, we will try to source it for you, find an alternative or give you our best advice on how to locate it.

We would love to design with you, to inspire you, to serve you and to gain another life long customer relationship. We are not just a Benjamin Moore Paint Store, we are your Benjamin Moore Design Centre in Lacombe and Red Deer.

I’ve consistently received great advice and excellent customer service at Fargeys. They are my go to, for colour recommendations, DIY projects, staining our deck, what paint product will work best, and the steps of what I need to do to achieve fantastic results. They always make me feel like a valued customer, and Benjamin Moore products are top quality and never disappoint. Thanks for everything!

Every year, Fargeys Decorating Centre sponsors or supports events throughout Central Alberta with a particular focus on children’s activities and animal rescue. Medicine River Wildlife Centre, The Ronald MacDonald House, Red Deer SPCA and Central Alberta Women’s Shelter are just a few organizations that we have contributed to. We also support silent auctions to various non-profit events so we appreciate your support by purchasing those items for worthy causes.
If your organization is looking for donations or sponsorship, please email us at info@fargeys.com or fax our South Store location at (403) 340-8636. While we would love to support everyone, we appreciate your understanding if we have reached our budget for the year.
