In the corner shopping center near me there was a vacancy for a long time. Finally there was some remodeling going on, then a sign came on: "Welcome A New Sherwin-Williams Paint Store". The new store opened up in no time.
I've been buying "Color Place" paints for years. They are sold at Wal Mart, and made by...you guessed it, Sherwin-Williams.
Now, I've neen painting mostly rental homes for years, so quality of paint is not a priority. What's more important is the price, and Color Place paints have been all under $15 a gallon. Why? because tenants are all the same.
So when this new store opened, I went in to see. And what I saw was gallons sell for $40 to $76. Ridiculous. Higher than Dunn Edwards.
For lumber I don't hesitate using a lumber yard, but for paint, I won't pay $76 for a gallon of paint at a store like this. What do you think?
