Legendary art-supply store Pearl Paint, at 308 Canal St., closed Thurs., April 17. It had occupied the six-story building — now for sale — since around 1960. Before then it was on Church St. where it opened in 1933. Last Saturday, someone had covered the place’s shuttered gate with “Gentrification in Progress” crime scene-style tape.

Pearl Paint was doing a brisk business, with an everything-must-go sale, about a week before it closed.
