Babel’s has been in business since 1950, when Victor Babel, Sr. and his wife Mickey opened the first Babel’s Paint and Wallpaper store in Norwood, MA. In the 1970’s, Victor’s youngest son, Vic Jr. and his wife Jeanne took over the business. By the 1990’s, the business had expanded to include professional designers and became renamed Babel’s Paint & Decorating Store. In 1996, Babel’s opened its second store in Jeanne’s hometown of Needham, MA. In 1999, Babel’s opened its third store in Foxboro, MA.
