In 1992, Rainy Day was purchased again by a drafting organization from Madison Heights. They chose to add “Art Supply” to the Rainy Day name. Through all the name and ownership changes the store remained relatively unchanged. It served my needs and those of the community with high quality art supplies and professional framing services.
Having always been a Rainy Day customer, I usually knew when they were looking for help at the store. At one point I remember seeing a help wanted sign and mentioning the possibility of a part-time job to my husband… his response was “If you want to work there, you should own it”. Famous last words, several years later (2005) I responded to a “For Sale” ad…which I promptly brought to the attention of my husband…The rest is history.
As a child, Rainy Day’s telephone number was only one digit different than my home phone number, so inevitably we would get wrong number calls at home for Rainy Day. Funny, the phone number here is still the same as it was 40 years ago…one of the many great traditions we proudly maintain.
Please come visit us, whether you’re an artist or not. You will always receive the same, personable and reliable service that has been a part of this store’s heritage.
