Default SW price increase

SW did have a price increase. Benjamin Moore did not increase their prices.
I'm not sure about PPG.

My ceiling paint price went from $16.16 per gallon to $16.79. That is a 4% increase, give or take. I use CHB if it matters.

I just met with my new SW rep today and I was not sold due to the fact that I've researched PPG, BM, SW, and Diamond Vogel. SW is losing me on their products every time they try to justify their prices.

P.S. PACman, what store did you own/work at when you were in the painting industry?
Also, what is your opinion on Diamond Vogel in the Midwest?

YES!! I was actually pissed last week after a supply run. A few hrs later I glanced @ my cc notification for the total charge n was shocked. Looked it up only to find my pricing has gone up....Called my rep but didnít get very far.

Vista paint & BM will be gettin my business for awhile as I stew in my frustration....

So had a meet w my rep last week. Asked him about price increases mentioned here. He said not by much 4-6% or so. Thatís like a $1 on a $25 gal of paint. Look I know price increases stink but really, a $1? Not much to complain about. Easy to pass on to customer when bidding. BM HD Loweís and any other paint selling store will probably have the same increase at some point this year.

I did make sure to grind him nicely on my prices though for this year. Especially pointing out how irritating it is to pay more on some things(sundries) than normal people when there are sales. He understood. He said he would dial them in. Thatís that! Ive got a great rep!

Why is anyone surprised? BM jacked thier prices too. Get used to it. It's all relative. It will affect everyone equally.

And on top of all of this the one factory PPG store here closed. All is hate dealing with them pour customers service. Had tons of matching problems over the years. Poor attitude.

Was it a year ago already. lol. Time goes by so fast. I just remember everyone up in arms when they did. Just saying that prices are always going to go up

and there is no use in complaining about it as it will affect everyone equally..
Woodco and cocomonkeynuts like this.

PPG and BM will both have price increases this year, ranging from 2-7% depending on product. Most independents will raise also, mostly because it is in line with the market. Rising cost of raw materials, as always, is the publicly promoted reason. If you only have SW in your market, good luck with negotiating pricing if you're not a 6 figure plus account. If your market has options, keep good relationships with all of them and pricing will reflect that at all stores.

All I have to do is look at my receipts for the last few years and I can assure you that BM like everyone else raises thier prices..

Diamond Vogel was one of my favorite product lines. Have you used much of it yourself?

BM seems to be 18-24 months price raise. I guess we will wait and see.

I have only used Permacryl and have loved it thus far. It might need a little Floetrol in it to help the leveling but it is quite durable in eggshell.

Weird thing is they just redid all their signage and it looks sweet then a year or so later(two weeks ago) I hear rumors that some of the stores are closing down here in NE.

The main one on "L" Street is still open. I think some of the under-performing stores have been closed down. Can't remember if they had one in Blair or Fremont.
