I think you have that backwards. SW acquired Valspar.

i use SW but slowed down a lot, sure they have some good paint ( limited ) just like all paint companies

but i hate their company greed, unfair pricing and them buying out decent paint companies only to take over the market

my only problem is not being brain washed by SW

but every F******ng homeowner
drinking the kool aid

at 56 years old i remember the mom & pop stores / restaurants / hardware / gas station (full service)

now it's a wal-mart / SW / WaWa / Mcd on ever corner while the good old boys fight to feed our families

Hey, don't knock the WaWa's. The turkey gobbler is the bomb shnizzle.

Granted it only comes out once a year...but it's worth it.

What do I think is going to happen you ask? Why of course you are all waiting with great anticipation for my answer so here it is! In a nutshell, more over-priced, over hyped, over marketed, average quality paint available in even more convenient locations! How is that?

A WaWa is a convenience store/gas station with awesome coffee and great sandwiches/hot food. They're big in eastern PA and southern NJ and expanded down the eastern seaboard to around North Carolina. They then skip over Georgia and South Carolina then pick up again in Florida.

It's one of the places I miss most from living in PA.

Default Sherwin is where its at for me.

A-100, Promar, Kwal Liquid Vinyl (which a rep told me is the main reason Sherwin bought out Kwal)
And Sherwin takes good care of me too. So I stick with them.

No. That would be PPG. And probably sooner then any of us realize. I give it two years.

While I was casually perusing my local Lowe's this morning, a couple of things stood out. In fact 7-8 people stood out. Why? Because they were in a big rush to tear down the Olympic/Valspar color gallery. I overheard one of them say the reason they were in such a big rush is because they had to have the "transition" done at all the stores by the end of the month, for the "season".

The other thing that stood out, and having been in retail my whole life i would notice this, was that 4 of the 6 endcaps in the paint department were devoted to SW/Hgtv paints and Purdy products. 2/3 of the prime selling locations are now dedicated to SW products. That tells me quite a lot.

Another thing. The Purdy "uniform flow" brush line, which I was told by my Purdy rep was a huge dud and was not going to be restocked by Lowe's, was back in the store and on 2 of those endcaps. (these brushes flat out suck btw).

Conspiracy? Ancient aliens? I say.....YES!
