Our company was built on family values, passed from generation to generation. Armon Decorating has evolved over the past 70 plus years from a painting business out of a home to a flooring, paint and decorating store.
Charlie Armon started the painting business out of his home in 1938 when he arrived in Blue Earth from Iowa where he was a steeple jack, painting church steeples. Ted Armon joined his father in the business and in 1949 they opened a store front at 124 W. 6th St.
In 1953, the business expanded to south Main. Ted’s oldest son, Terry, joined him in the business and Terry became the sole owner upon his father’s death in 1969.
In 1989, another move took place when the business block on south Main was torn down. Armon Decorating moved to the old J.C. Penney’s building, formerly Eder’s Department Store, located at 101 N. Main where it still is today.
In 2006, Terry’s youngest son, Matt, joined him in the business. The token paint brush was handed over from Terry to Matt, who is now the general manager of Armon Decorating.
