Default HGTV Cashmere?

Has anyone seen a HGTV by Sherwin Williams labeled Cashmere yet? Was I hallucinating again? Coming to a Lowe's near you maybe?

I could have sworn I saw it on the web last night but I was at home and I'll be danged if I can remember where I saw it now.

I'm not sure if it's cashmere or not. However, it has been labeled HGTV for about a year at Lowe's in Cincinnati area.

Here it's only Ovation and Showcase. I would be surprised to see them put Cashmere in Lowe's but who knows what they are thinking nowadays.

They don't have it labeled that way in the SW stores anywhere do they?

In Central Fl it's not labeled as HGTV

They push it a lot, every store has a video playing, they give me a decent price and homeowner love it

it sell itself when bidding on repaint but we quit using, i am 100% finished with it

Why ... SW just doesn't stock it. Good luck if you need more that a few gallons
last job i did i has to go to 3 different SW stores to find enough

what a joke, and of course there answer is ... tell us a week or 2 before you need it and we'll order it

In their defense you have to remember there is a ton of items to carry. For example SW INT


PM400
PM200
HGTV
Super Paint
Cashmere
Duratuon
Emerald

Now ad up all the sheens atleast 3 perProduct and there are the sizes qt gl and fives

Cashmere is a big seller for them. They really should have plenty in stock. I'd talk to my rep if I were you.

I'm thinking it may have been a label they use in markets outside of the US. Canada? Australia maybe? I don't know if HGTV is on telly outside of the US though.

I quit watching HGTV the day I heard one of their "experts" tell a guy just to use any exterior house paint on his brand new deck.

no my problem about "ton of items to carry"
either stock it or make it a special order but STOP pushing it if you don't stock it

pacman ... sure they will stock it if i give advance notice the thing is i buy from a lot of different stores, if i'am in east Orlando working today i'll pick up paint for a job the next day. I don't want to drive back to first store to order just because the don't stock it in e Orlando

I know many of yall buy from the same store and that's great, but a HO can walk into any paint store in Orlando and ask about me and they will know me

Makes it easy for me when i tell the HO every store in town knows RPF

I can't stand some of the HGTV show, especially that blond flipper in Detroit. She does very old (lead) homes, and they just spray right over the peeling paint for exterior. Now what happens when the new HO buys that home and then has to pay big bucks to have it done right? EPA should be all over them.

A new SW product is coming to Lowes. We are removing products now to make room.
Valspar is the hardest hit. All that they told us is that it will be our most expensive paint line.

I understand where you are coming from, but as a store owner that actually has to pay for the paint he stocks I can tell you that there is absolutely no excuse for every SW store you deal with not to have an adequate stock of this product. All they have to do is order it. They don't have to cut a check for it. They may have excuses for not having it but they don't have a legitimate reason for not having it. Even if they are being pressured by management to control or lower their stores inventory that is never an excuse to not have enough product for a regular customer, no matter how many stores he is buying from.

And I assure you that if you were to present this to the district manager, he would agree 100% with me. Do YOUR business a favor and tell your rep AND if possible contact the district manager. YOU are losing money, and YOU need to tell them to get this corrected. The fact that this is an issue at all tells me that they do not value your companies business as much as you think they do. I'm not picking on you, but don't settle for this. It really irks me when I do everything in my power for my customers and a company with virtually unlimited resources such as SW can't get adequate stock in their stores. There in no legitimate reason why you should have to waste your profits chasing down paint.

Aha! Something is afoot! I knew it! Maybe Cashmere at $10 a gallon less then painting contractors have been paying for it? Just like the Ovation/Superpaint BS?

@PACman Cashmere sgould be stocked up to the roof it is that popular. I thought Repaint Florida was talking about the HGTV which virtually nobody pushes, sells or talks about. But you are correct I break my ass to get those products that retailers typically dont carry and supply (as long as I can) per request

my basic price for pro mar 200, super paint & cashmere are only a $1.00 off each other

we never use 200 & if i offer the homeowner a choice of super paint vs cashmere 90% will choose cashmere

again SW pushes it but out of 20 stores maybe 3 stock enough of it

today alone i was in Titusville, Celebration, Winter Park & Windermere
if i can't drive to the closest SW and get what i need then i don't don't want to offer it to my customers, why would i want to drive by 3 SW to find the 1 that stocks it?

seriously why would i want to push something SW doesn't stock? I am 100% puzzled why they don't stock it, it sell to HO great but i thing we just have so many contractors that use 200

sure my rep says let them know to oder it but i have better thinngs to do them order stock for SW

if you stock it i'll buy it ... but meanwhile i've given up on it

I guess I'm such a low volume customer that SW always has enough Cashmere on hand for me.

I was just wondering, what are your alternatives for Cashmere other than SuperPaint? BM Regal Select, or a PPG offering?

Well the new product at Lowes is SW Inifinity HGTV home. All US stores should have it in place Feb. 28th It's not cheap. Also Lowes will have Cabot stain back in the store also. Lowes is doing a complete revamp of the paint Department. also dropping the lower grade interior paint and adding a professional stain line To the top 100 stain sellers nation wide, my store is in the top 100 so we will receive it Feb. 1st.

I know you despise SW and Lowes just keeping you informed.
