The company began as “Guiry Brothers” at 17th and Curtis Street. After World War II, Joseph’s sons, Leonard, Frank, and Joseph Jr., took over the company. Leonard headed the retail stores while Joe managed the paint contracting, and Frank Guiry became a general contractor, building homes in Denver’s postwar boom. He opened two new retail locations in Lakewood and Aurora. 

In 1962, Richard “Dick” Guiry took over as the president of the company and opened a new store in the University Hills Shopping Center. What began as a 1500-square-foot location has since grown to a 20,000-square-foot retail outlet that is now located at 2121 South Colorado Boulevard.

Parker, CO Store

1999 marked a century of business for Guiry’s. To celebrate this achievement, Dick Guiry and his son Sean Guiry opened the Parker store and renovated a 25,000-square-foot building just north of Coors Field on the corner of Market Street and 23rd. Known as the LoDo location, this unique store exhibits the charm and history residents have come to appreciate about Denver and brought Guiry’s back to its downtown roots. Guiry’s further expanded outside of the Denver metro area, with paint and decorating available in Fort Collins and Colorado Springs. These new locations signaled a new chapter for Guiry’s as we expanded to have a presence in 2 new significant cities on the front range.

The end of 2020 marked one of the most exciting chapters in Guiry’s as we rapidly expanded into 14 additional locations. We did this by acquiring Diamond Vogel’s mountain region operations. This expansion allowed us to offer an expanded product offering and added convenience through 25 locations throughout Colorado and New Mexico.
