E. W. Poore is one of Manchesterís oldest continuously run, family-owned businesses, having been in operation since 1880. Currently owned & operated by Susan Turbyne, 4th generation descendant of Edgar Wallace Poore, the business has changed focus several times. Starting out as a coal and heating oil supplies, a major change was to provide paint and wallpaper supplies and services. As leisure time increased for many people in the 1950ís, paint-by-number kits became popular, and E. W. Poore was selling art supplies to support that. Picture framing was the next logical step, and we pride ourselves on providing unsurpassed quality, service, and expertise to the framing customer.
