im sure they made a good profit on me
Hey thanks for believing me. I'm new to the community here and have no reason to lie. I'm just trying to compare with other contractors.
We are in this together against them big corporate giants!
I think it's price fixing!

I have seen customers in Sherwin williams get taken for 100+ for 2 gallons of paint also. Im almost 100% this is normal business for Sherwin williams.

My point in the thread is to see why and how the "man" sherwin williams thr nulti bullion dollar company, is taking it to us small guys on pricing! To me it's like they are Fixing prices. Similar to the gas prices!
You"ll get better spread rate on a gallon of gas. also better coverage.

Promar 400 flat 11$ g

Haha, I always provide proof. And it wasn't even my claim. If you guys aren't paying these prices you better consult your reps

I deal mainly with multihousing nowadays so I primarily use their garbage lol...
Memphis area

All SW products:

PM 400
$9.xx/gallon
Masterhide (aka, worst paint in the world in every way, or tinted pudding)
$8.xx/gallon

I honestly haven't paid alot of attention to the prices lately so these may or may not reflect the fairly recent price increase...

Superpaint Ext
$31-33/gallon. Can't remember exactly offhand...
EDIT: I like the Superpaint for residential,etc, the other stuff I listed is the garbage...
